I am asked a lot why I am going into teaching. There are a lot of reasons, but I think the biggest one is because no one was really there for me growing up and I felt pretty alone. My parents were in the military, so they were never home. I was generally unhappy with my life and the lack of compassion I faced everyday wore me down. I don’t want anyone to ever feel the way that I used to, so now it is my goal in life to, not only teach lessons, but teach compassion, understanding, and care.
But first I must learn it.
