Rachel Benton, Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools

"I teach so that I impact the lives of children. I teach so that I can be a bright spot in their day, sometimes maybe the only bright spot. I teach so that I can show them love and how to love even when loving them is hard. I teach so that I can share with them my passion for reading. So that they can escape to another world in books, because sometimes that’s what helps them make it through.  I teach so that I can peel back the layers of some tough exteriors to reveal the beautiful shining star within. I teach so that a child who has always struggled and hates school might find the one thing they are good at and see that they do have potential. I teach because I believe in my students."
