Why I Have Chosen the Teaching Profession

When I think of becoming a teacher I would like to imagine or hope that I would be “turning the key” for a student of mine to become something great.

Therefore, my school experience being so positive I had not thought what it would be like if teachers did not care. However, the most important thing is --that I remember saying to the fourth grader “if I was your teacher I...
