There is one thing that is common in most classrooms: chalk. A piece of chalk is a simple object. It writes, it erases, and it eventually fades into nothing. As a teacher, I hope to help students create their future. By teaching English, I can help students write their hopes and dreams, and encourage them to pursue what they love. I hope to help students not be afraid to erase negative things from their lives. In elementary school, children can be brutal. I hope to inspire children to not be afraid of letting go of their past. As a teacher, I hope to eventually fade in the background and watch my students succeed without my help.
