Why I Teach
I have always known that I wanted to be a teacher. I was raised in a small town without many opportunities to grow. From day one at my college, I started working in the classroom. This prepared me for so many situations and armed me with experience. When I graduated, I was given the opportunity to teach in Houston and could not wait to start my career.
I teach because it is what I am passionate about. I come to school each day to, in someway, make my students smile or laugh. My goal is for them to walk away with lifelong memories that they will look back on when they’re older.
