Teaching is Personal

For me, teaching is personal. I became a teacher because of my grandmother who raised me. She was a teacher for 50 years. So here’s a shout-out to all of those wonderful people who were teachers in the past, and who gave us the drive, the will and the want to become teachers when we grew up. I want to pass that on to millions of other children as they grow up – be educators, join us.
