"You will get a job."
"There is no money in teaching."
"You will be great!"
"I would never have the patience to work in Special Education."
I am running through a sea of opinions when I have lost my own
Will I get a job?
What will I do for money?
Will I be great?
Do I have the patience?
Close your eyes.
Think of your experiences.
You have been a teacher for your entire life.
Think of who you will be helping.
Think of who you have helped.
Millions of students.
But who helped you?
Millions of mentors.
A never ending battle of people helping others.
I choose to help others for a living.
Not because of the money.
Not because I have nothing else to be.
It is because today's children are our future.
Directly impacting our future?
I raise my hand to that.
I will get a job.
I will be great.
I do have the patience.
I have always had the patience.
I will always have the patience.
As for money, I am not going into teaching for the money,
Because frankly, teaching is not for the faint of heart.
