What was your inspiration to teach or what keeps you in the educational field?

I’ve known that I wanted to be a teacher since I was in elementary school. I loved going to school and learning. As I grew up, I was sure that I wanted a career that would allow me to make a positive difference in others’ lives. I love that teaching is a helping profession, but I also get to be creative.
