How did you know you wanted to be a teacher?
When I decided to become a teacher I knew I wanted to teach kids with special needs. I always felt left out and scared in my elementary school classes when I was a kid. I wanted to make sure that at least the kids I taught felt safe and loved. I wanted them to know that someone really cared about them.
