Why did you want to become an educator?
I have always loved learning. In elementary school my science teacher would answer every question that I could think of. I would bring a rock inside from recess and he would tell me what kind it was. He even gave me a little book about planets that I still have today! He definitely shaped my view of learning and love for science!
