Today’s #teacherhero is Bernard Otis Walters from Williston-Elko High in Barnwell School District 29!

Bernard felt the calling to be a teacher after tutoring students his senior year in college and has some advice for others considering teaching as a profession.

Do not enter the teaching profession unless you are serious. Serious! Mr. Walters you are not serious. I would reply, “I know”. I never take myself serious. Leave pride at the door and see the children as the most important reason for you being there. Children need adults making sacrifices for their future.
