“What inspires me to be a teacher…”

What inspired me to be a teacher was a desire to get out of social work and have more direct interaction with young adults. Rather then being the bad guy all the time I wanted to offer more of a positive role in their lives. What inspires me to continue being a teacher now, is the amazing minds, hearts, and souls, I am privileged to interact with on a daily basis. What inspires me daily is the hard work, thoughtfulness and ability of the young adults at Northpoint. I have had more fun in the last 6 months of my career than I have had in 13 years as a social worker. So thank you to all the students and fellow staff for the inspiration!
