I think most people enter teaching because they want to help children and like kids! I knew when I was very young that I wanted to become a teacher. Then, I went to a Career Day in High School that helped me decide to become a Special Education teacher. I believe that all children should be respected and cared for. When we teacher, we are making a big impact on the world. It's a VERY important job!

Most people that I know who enter the world of teaching because they enjoy impact students, helping students learn something new and being a bridge for students toward their academic career. Pretty much they want to help mold kids, children and adults for the better of our society.
