1026BC_Future

I have many goals for the future, but one of the most important ones is my goal to be a teacher.  I am currently getting my master's degree and hope to teach next year.  It has always been my dream to teach in an elementary school in New York City.  I have always planned on returning home to New York after graduation.  I want to be a teacher in NYC because I want to work with students who others have forgotten about, those who aren't given the chances and opportunities to succeed. Many of the students I will be working with will be coming from tough and challenging homes and backgrounds.  School might not be valued at home and they might not have supportive homes that challenge them and push them to succeed.  They might be dealing with issues larger than succeeding in school, like having three meals a day or visiting a parent in jail.  But, my students will know that they can achieve anything.   I will believe in my students when others have not.  I hope to inspire them and pass on my love for learning.  I want to be the one who makes a difference in their lives and gives them the chance to succeed and achieve.  My students will feel loved and will know that they are gifted and talented in their own unique way.  This is my main goal for the future, to inspire these young people to succeed.  If I don't do anything else but that I will be very happy.

I hope to hear from you soon!
