Why I Teach
I can remember several years ago Mrs. C Sutton addressed students at graduation. During her remarks, she commented on "finding your passion." I try to stress that when I talk to students who are deciding what classes to take or what they want to do when they get out of high school. Take me for instance; I cannot imagine doing anything else. I have my "dream" job. Sure there are those days when I think I could find a less stressful job and not have any papers to grade at home or labs to prepare for, and we have all had days where we just don't see eye-to-eye with a student or two. But ask anyone who knows me, this feeling doesn't last long. So ...............my challenge to you is to take a good look at yourself and ask "what is my passion?" You might be surprised.
