“What inspires me to be a teacher…”

I am inspired to be a teacher, and to continue teaching, because I believe I can make a difference in the lives of my students.  I love to encourage students to be their own weird selves.  I appreciate individuality.  Too often, adolescents are considered a problem, when in truth, they are a joyful, creative crowd, that just need to be channeled.  I love the variety, and even, the mania, that comes with teaching teenagers.
