Like a stone cast into the water, the effect you have on others echoes out into eternity. This is the product of teaching.

My dream is to be a full-time college professor and teach at a university. At thirty-seven, I already have a bachelor’s degree in computer animation. It was by teaching animation classes part-time that I realized that I love to teach. I would like to make teaching my full-time career, so I am returning to college in the Spring of 2015 to take undergraduate classes, so that I can pursue a Master’s degree in Mathematics. I just need a few undergraduate courses, and then I will be able to apply to the graduate school. I will have to continue working while going to school, but I don’t mind hard work when I know that in the end, I’m going to get to do something amazing. I have always had a passion for math, and would like to teach others to enjoy math as much as I do.
