Please Stop Asking Me Why I Am Only A Teacher

I am a teacher because I have experienced first hand the role education can have in lifting young people out of a cycle of disadvantage. I am a teacher because my own teachers showed me the enormous impact that these professionals can have on the course of someone's life. I am a teacher because I can see myself in my students.
