If I could earn a living doing what I love most, it would be teaching. I have loved teaching for as long as I can remember. I remember always “playing school” and writing down lesson plans. I am currently enrolled in my junior year of college in the Secondary-Ed program, so I am pursuing my dreams of becoming a teacher. Giving back to others and sharing my knowledge is something that brings me joy and happiness. When tutoring a fellow classmate it is absolutely rewarding when what I know is relayed to them and they understand the concept I am teaching them. My face beams with pure delight as I watch people grow through knowledge. I have worked as hard as I can in college to maintain my 3.76 GPA and I will keep up with my studies and improve my GPA and receive my teaching license, so I can be a person who helps shapes the minds of the youth. I will be able to teach them today what they will need to know for tomorrow and the next day and years after that. Who knows, what I teach students in the future may change the world. One piece of information that I say can change any student and by me teaching them I am changing the world, just one mind at a time.
