Which teacher made the most impact on your life?

"My kindergarten teacher, Ms.Stevenson made the most impact on my life. At the age of 5 i entered her classroom and immediately knew I wanted to be just like her. She was kind and compassionate yet strong. She had perfect balance of tough love and loving love. We had an assignment to draw/write about what we wanted to be when we grew up and I drew a picture of Ms.Stevenson. I knew at age of 5 I wanted to be an educator just like her. I wanted to create a classroom full of kids who are excited about learning!!"

Why I Became a Teacher

I remember telling my mother when I was in Kindergarten that I was not going to get married, nor have any children of my own when I grew up. My plan was to take care of the children that no one else wanted. I often thought of that conversation while my husband and I spent the first six years of our marriage struggling with infertility.
