I #LoveTeaching because every day is something new! The unpredictability, innocence, determination, and excitement that the students bring makes teaching one of the best jobs in the world!

I #LoveTeaching because there are thousands of kids in our lifetime who need that right word of encouragement, that right act of grace, that right moment of levity. I am always humbled how these pebble-sized moments ripple outward for years.

I #LoveTeaching for the breakthrough moments. The first time a student genuinely smiles in class, the first time a student musters up the confidence to share in front of his or her peers, the first time your tough student hugs you and tells you he or she loves you. I’m in it for the wonderful, incredible, unique human beings I have the honor of teaching.

I love teaching because I’m a product of public education, and I experienced firsthand the influence of great teachers. I teach with constant joy and passion trying to inspire my students. And hopefully, whatever they chose to do in their lives, they’ll do it with passion, commitment, and thinking that every day is an opportunity to succeed-- or, if not, an opportunity to fail as practice to succeed the next day!

Teaching is one of the only professions where we have the honor and blessing of seeing a new canvas painted every day, live, and in person! And it's these painters, our students, that continue to give us teachers hope for those that we serve!
