Life is too short to wait. Every new day is another chance to change your life. If I could earn a living doing what I love the most it would be teaching elementary school students. Teachers get to do the most important work in the world next to parenting. Teaching has the power to create a healthy, just, and peaceful world. It has the ability to seed our society with informed, caring and engaged citizens. It has the capacity to inspire lifelong learning and a passion for knowledge, understanding, and innovation. I believe that teaching may well be the profession with the greatest responsibility and require the truly best and brightest, wisest and most motivated, most creative and compassionate people. Education changes the lives of people; it certainly has changed my life. There is no other job more important than education. It is the foundation of our democracy. By seizing on what’s working, and recreating those successes from one classroom to the next, we can make it better for everyone.
