    Choose a call location with low background noise or that’s very quiet. If it’s a video call, try to take your call in a location without background distractions.

    While no formal preparation is needed, you might want to think through a few questions beforehand:

    • What is one thing you didn’t expect before teaching?

    • What is the most rewarding part of teaching?

    • How do I decide on what grade level and subject to teach?

    • What questions should I be asking myself when choosing a teacher prep program?

    • Do you have advice for funding my preparation?

    • Will my personality fit for teaching?
