Why I Teach
When I was little, I wanted to become a singer when I grew up because she loved to perform. When I was a teenager, I wanted to become a doctor because I wanted to heal people. Eventually I realized that through teaching, I would become both a singer and a doctor. My students won’t remember the songs, but they’ll remember the lessons. I don't cure physical diseases, yet I cure my students’ misunderstandings about themselves, others or school.
“I’m proud of my students and their growth. When they come to me, they come with zero; and they leave with 100. I do it for them.”
I believe that I was brought to teaching for a reason – I have a platform that allows me to make learning better for my students.
