I started teaching in 1998, right after I moved back from living in Maine for two years. I had just started to look for accounting work again when a good friend asked if I wanted to teach children. There was a shortage of teachers in California and anyone with a college degree was a potential candidate.
I went for an interview, thinking that I could at least be a substitute teacher working part-time while seeking a new accounting position. Walked in with my resume, sat down for an interview, and was offered a full-time teaching position starting right away.
The rest is history.
