My inspiration to become a teacher, is because of the teachers that I had in high school. I saw the impact they had on their students, I want to have the same impact on the students that I will someday teach. I experienced many times, where the only thing keeping me going was my teachers, these were the days that I realized how important teachers are. I strive to be an ally for the students that need someone on their side, and for the students that work hard and deserve to graduate, but due to circumstances beyond their control, they fall behind.
