What’s a motto you live by?

Why do you love being a teacher?

 I began my professional career as a nurse. I was given the opportunity to start teaching last December and it has completely changed my outlook.  Nursing was rewarding, but teaching is that and so much more.  I love that I still get the chance to influence the lives of others and make an impact.  I hope to be the teacher that inspires my students to want to change the world.
