Why do I want to teach?

I always wanted to become a teacher. The main reason for this is that I want to do something to help the community, and give back some of the privileges that I enjoyed. Some of these privileges included a great education, and caring teachers. Everyone has gotten to where they are in life because they had a teacher. By definition, a teacher is someone who gives instruction and communicates skills. The lives most impacted by teachers are those of our children. Teaching makes a difference in children, because it gives them tools to help them be successful in the future. I could see myself accomplishing this task through teaching. I feel that a lot of schools in the community need hard working, caring, and responsible teachers, and I want to become a part of it. I believe that to become a teacher, your heart really needs to be in it and you need to be committed and dedicated. I will constantly think of ways on how to improve things and how to help my students when I become a teacher. I have the motivation, and the potential to become a teacher. I feel I have a real enthusiasm for teaching as well as a great deal of patience, which I believe is an important quality to hold when working with children. In this way, I will be influencing the futures of our next generation in a positive way. I have previously volunteered at Wicomico middle school in Salisbury, MD for 2 years. I have tutored them in the (WISE) afterschool program and the (WISE) summer program. I’ve built a great relationship with all the students, and I enjoyed my time working there and helping students out, who were in need of help with their math and other subjects. Through this volunteering experience, I learned a lot of things. Most important was the behavior aspect of children. I completely understand how to motivate students, and how to get them interested in the coursework. Their enthusiasm and motivation is the key to a better future...
