Why I want to be a Teacher? I always knew ever since I was little that I wanted to do something with helping others. I wanted to be a nurse for a long time but ever since high school I just felt more of doing something with children. I have always been good at English so that’s what I am going to try to major in so I can eventually teach that to kids in Elementary.
