They say if you love what you do you will never work a day in your life right? Well since I was a young child (I was never small so thus the word change) I wanted to teach others. In every book where you would put what you would be I would write teacher. Being a teacher means so much to me; to mold the minds of the youth and hopefully make a change to them. It could be a small change like finally helping them understand fractions or a big change like being the role model they need because their home life isn’t that great. Teaching in itself is such a rewarding job because you know it isn’t for the money or title but for helping, being what the students need, showing them the path and watching which one they chose. I’ve never met a teacher who regretted their job because they loved what they did. Seeing the students grow and change and seeing the light in their eyes or the ambition in their hearts. As a teacher you are changing the world every day, you could be teaching the next president or the next empowerment speaker. You give children a chance and teach them what others refuse to. A teacher is so important and changes everyone everyday with or without trying.
