1024BC_Hero

Last time I wrote to you, I talked about the fact that education is really important to me. I think this postcard will give you an idea of how important education really is to me. I want to write to you about who my heroes are, and the first heroes that come to mind for me are teachers. Some people might think: Teachers?!?! Teachers aren’t heroes; they do a normal job every day, just like everyone else. But I would disagree with people who think that teachers aren’t heroes. To me, teachers serve others. At the college that I go to, one of the main ideas that students are supposed to follow is the idea of serving others. I think all of my heroes, especially teachers, follow this idea every day of their lives! Teachers work hard to pass knowledge along to their students, to be a positive role model and set a good example for their students, and to make sure that their students are prepared to go out into the world. I also hope that most teachers inspire their students to serve others as well. I know one of the main reasons I want to be a teacher is not just because I love it, but because I know that I will be doing a job that is important in shaping the minds and lives of others in a positive way. My mom is a teacher, and I have always admired the career path that she’s chosen. But my mom isn’t a hero just because of her job; instead, she’s a hero to me because she is a great example of a parent. Parents are also heroes to me because their whole mission is life is also to serve others – their own kids. They work so hard to make sure that others are happy and to provide for them, they are selfless and so caring. Basically, for me it all boils down to serving others – teachers, parents, volunteers – they all work towards a higher purpose. They all strive to affect the lives of others in a positive way and to make the world a better place for all to live in. I hope that in the future I can have a positive effect on others and give back so much of what I have been blessed with. I’d love to hear who your heroes are and why if you have a chance to write back! God bless,

Erin
