Music Teacher Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Music Teacher in Indianapolis:
"Lots of Outside Work."
While teaching is very rewarding, it is physically and mentally exhausting. There never is enough prep time to prepare for teaching and so you have to do lots of work outside of the 40 hours you put in. If you want to be a teacher, be prepared for it to consume your life.
