The environment of the classroom, had a computer lab, it was very project based, he had motivation posters up all over the room, he had collaboration time with students, and had a lot of group work.
He has taught classes about bussiness, accounting, up to a coach!
He put in at least 45-50 hours a week, not including coaching at games, and setting up plays.
The biggest challenges he's had as a teacher was, getting all the students involved/engaged in the learning process
The biggest reward from teaching, from Mr.Canonico's perspective is when former graduates come back and visit and share how their life is going.
Mr. Canonico said, on a level of 1-10 the personal self-motivation needed to do this job is an 8.
