It wasn't until my senior year of high school that I realized that I wanted to teach and better the students of today. Everyone talks about our next generation and how they are going to dictate the direction of this nation, and I believe that with the right education this nation could be in good hands. It takes more than just being a spring of knowledge to better students education. You need to build relationships with the students you are teaching. My goal is to not only teach students the appropriate knowledge they need to know to succeed in their future, but to build relationships with them that will stay with them throughout their educational career. I still talk to teachers that influenced me the most during elementary school and I hope to have the same impact on students whether I am actually teaching them, or just tutoring them.
