Why I Teach

Teaching brings me great joy. And the longer I teach, the more I love being a teacher. Why? It's the energy, the excitement, and the creativity within a classroom. It's the risk-taking, the determination, and the growth of my students. It's the focus, the goals, and the accomplishments for us all. It's the integrating, the reflecting, and the refining with my peers. It's the support given and the support received. It's the new strategies learned and helpful resources found. And it's the connection with students and guidance provided to them.
