Why Become a Teacher?
Read What Others Have to Say

Choosing to become a teacher is choosing to influence the next generation.

Just think of your favorite teacher from your own experience in school.

Is there someone who challenged you to do more than you thought you could?

Is there someone who went out of her way to make a connection with you?

Is there someone who made it his mission to ensure your success?

If you can think of even one teacher who made that kind of difference in your education, scroll down and contribute your story so that others may be inspired by it.

Or start by reading inspirational stories that others have contributed about their best teachers.

If money is not the only reward you are looking for, then take a serious look at becoming a teacher. It may be the most fulfilling career move you ever make.

The following stories attest to the huge impact a great teacher can have on young minds.

And sometimes, that makes the difference in creating a successful adult.
