    Why I Teach

    I decided to be a teacher in first grade. My older sister has Down syndrome and my parents held her back, so we happened to be in the same grade. I watched while her teachers took the time to work with her and observed how her learning soared. I listened to the language they used and tried to mimic it as we played school at home. Little did those teachers know the impact that they had on my life while they were busy making a difference in my sister’s life.
