If I could earn a living doing what I loved most, I wouldn’t be going to school. You don’t get paid to do what I love doing most. That’s being a stay at home care taker and mom. However, what I love equally is helping people. It’s never in a specific way, everyone needs something different. In order to make a difference in people’s lives, I want to be an English Teacher. This job some would think would limit me. “Oh you’ll just be a middle or high school, maybe a college teacher if you are lucky.” A teacher is so much more than that! Not only does a teacher help guide students in a given subject, a good teacher listens and guides her students in other aspects of life. A good teacher knows that it takes a village to raise a child and does her part to help. A good teacher can change a life, can make someone hope, can motivate someone to be and do better, to help shape a better generation of people who also want to change the world. As an English teacher I can travel to different countries and help educate people that otherwise wouldn’t have much of a chance learning English. I can make the world a better place by giving people a chance to learn something that can help them and by being kind and helping in any other way my position would allow me to.
