Why I Teach…
by Jocelyn Child
I teach because I believe in education and that the power of knowledge can make a difference for the better. I believe that education can change lives and even future generations to come. I love teaching my students my native language Spanish and I am hopeful this new skill can bring them new opportunities to brighten their futures. I teach with the hope that I can touch the hearts and minds of my students. I hope something I say or do inspires them to do better in their own lives and for their country. I enjoy teaching because I am surrounded by wonderful people at Canyon Crest elementary, people that help and inspire me to be a better teacher day after day. I love the fact that every day is a new adventure because I never know what things my students will come up with tomorrow. My seatbelt is buckled and I am enjoying the ride!
