So maybe an average Joe teaching job is not what someone is expected to change the world with but if you think about it, we are the people that spend 180 days out of the year, maybe even more, to inspire children to live out their dreams. I am a person who enjoys sharing with others my gifts and talents and help them learn more not just about school subjects but about themselves.
Somewhere there is someone who was the President’s teacher and I know that it is a possibility that something they said or did, influenced Barack Obama to be the president of the United States. In a classroom will sit a child who will someday find the cure to cancer, will end hunger in all corners of the world. In a classroom at this very moment there is a child who will be the inventor of a hovercraft. Maybe there aren’t accomplishers of those things in the classrooms of today, but there is a child who has a burning passion to help others learn and have a longing for knowledge and they will teach the geniuses and politicians of the world.
Education is and always be the future and education will always be what changes the world. So maybe I don’t want to be an inventor or a lawyer or a missionary, but I want to ignite a spark in the minds of those people who will be those things and love what they do as well.
