I make a living as an educator by way of a previous career writing and producing new media. Though I could say I completely switched careers, the reality is I've just added classroom management and education policy to what I was already doing before: figuring out the best way to tell a story to a particular audience so that they reach understanding. Like Johnny Carson allegedly told Steve Martin after his first stint on the Tonight Show, "you'll use EVERYTHING." I believe it's true.
