Why I Love Teaching:
“I love teaching young students the joy of learning new things and to believe in themselves and 'Dream Big!' I love teaching young students to read and seeing the joy that learning to read can bring a student. I love teaching because I know I am inspiring future leaders, scientist, doctors, lawyers and teachers!”
