Why I Teach
The most rewarding part of teaching is knowing that I am making a difference in my school community. Knowing that I am helping people, students and staff alike, to make their experiences a little more enjoyable and easier. It’s not for recognition or accolades. It’s because I know what students and staff in my district deserve, a fighting chance at an equitable education.
