Ok so I'm a little late (3 days) but I saw this and I REALLY want to share!!
Ohhhh there are so many things that come to mind when I think about what it means to me.
But really I just think about how I almost wasn't a teacher. I've been told my WHOLE life that I should teach, but when I entered college I did not pursue it. When you think about all the "realistic" points of being a teacher it is not very inviting....low income, long hours, all the hats you must wear, and the STRESS.
No way jose...not for this girl.
But it was always in the back of my mind.
Fast forward and here I sit a fully converted teaching nut!! I'll admit I'm a lil obsessed with becoming the BEST teacher I can be. Its not about me though. Being a teacher for me is all about my children.
Within days of being in the classroom with them and getting to know their personalities I can't help but fall in love. They become like my own children and I am deeply invested in helping them succeed. I will do whatever it takes to make his happen!! So I must be the best teacher I can be for them. I look for different methods to reach my children. I try my hardest to build relationships and trust with my students.
Being a teacher means I can mentor, love, teach, bond, and influence my students. And I LOVE every minute of it!!
