When we look at teachers of FHCI, it is hard to picture them doing anything other than being in the classroom, and teaching us school related things. However, as surprising as it may sound, some teachers have had previous occupations, before they became what we know them as today. Here are some of our great teachers, and their jobs before FHCI.
Did you have a different job before becoming a teacher?
“Yes, I didn’t actually become a teacher until I was in my thirties. Before that, I worked as a news photographer. I also worked as a public relations consultant.”
Did you work for any particular newspaper?
“No, I was mostly freelance, but there’s a photo agency that I worked for called “Getty Images”. Once a while, someone buys but very rarely.”
Did you enjoy any of these particular jobs?
“I did, I enjoyed both of them. I didn’t work on a regular enough basis for me to afford to have a family in Toronto, so once I had a son, I started paying attention to education because he was going to be involved in it as he grew older. So, I started looking for a new career. I thought teaching might work out, and it has.”
