Why be a teacher? Because the future of our country, our world, depends upon what happens in our schools. Teachers are virtually limitless in their capacity to touch lives. Teachers give knowledge and skills and urge children to pursue their dreams. Considering that on average teachers affect 3,000 kids over the course of their careers, the ripple effect of even a single teacher's impact can be astounding!
