The other day I ran across #whyiteach on a Facebook post. The hashtag peeked my curiosity and I decided to look further into it. I discovered all sorts of wonderful stories from educators about their successes in the classroom and why they teach. It was inspiring to read all the different reasons educators do what they do. It is important that we first identify why we love what we do and then share it with others. So, today, I’ve decided to share with you why I teach and ask you to share your reasons with me.
I teach because I love making a difference in people’s lives, specifically other teachers. I have chosen to teach educators because I know how hard their jobs are. I am passionate about helping them in their passion and if I can make their jobs a bit easier by sharing a new idea, game or activity or simply offering a word of encouragement, then I have done my job.
