A high school ACT prep teacher from Catlettsburg, Kentucky...

Nate Rice

Hi, my name's Nate Rice, I teach at Boyd County High School in Ashland, Kentucky, and I teach ACT prep and math tutoring.

What made you choose teaching as a career?
It's kind of the family business. Uh, my mom's a teacher, and has been for 34 years now. She's also been a principal and now works in the central office. So, it's been really exciting.

What's the most rewarding aspect of being a teacher?
I would say... the look on kids' face when they--they know they have figured something out and they know they've mastered a skill. It's really awesome. I love it.

What is your dream category?
NFL FOOTBALL would be my dream category.

Tune in! You might learn a thing or two!
