I am a secondary English teacher.
At least, I dream to be.
I want nothing more
than to shape a generation
and inspire people like me
to want to teach
for the rest of their lives.
I am an English teacher.
I can make kids see the world
and inspire them to choose a new favorite book.
I am a teacher.
Regardless of subject or passion,
my goal is to inspire minds
and make people feel.
I cannot have a bigger impact
than a high school.
High schools today
are filled with uncaring teachers,
people who tell you no when you ask a question.
I am not like that.
I want to be everything my best teacher was
and everything my worst teacher was not.
I know I can succeed someday.
I am trying so hard to reach my goal,
and I know without a doubt I can make it.
Give it a few years,
and you'll be seeing my name
followed by a Teacher of the Year award.
I can do it,
and I know I can.
Because I am a secondary English teacher.
Because I am an English teacher.
Because I am a teacher.
Or, at least, I want to be.
So I will be.
Just watch me.
