As the saying goes, to teach is to change a life forever. Why do people go into teaching? That's easy. Teachers want to make a difference in the life of a child. In my opinion, there is no profession nobler than that of a teacher. Teachers are consistent adults in students' lives. We teach so much more than the standards we assess each year. Sure, I teach the basics, but as a teacher, I also get to help teach my students the value of hard work. I teach them tolerance of others and why service in the community should always be on their radar.
