I decided to become a teacher to fight educational inequity in U.S. schools and improve opportunities for students. I started my career as a journalist reporting on education issues in South Carolina. That exposure to the reality of the achievement gap in the United States inspired me to apply for Teach For America so that I could have a direct impact on students in classrooms.
I decided to become a teacher because of its profound impact on a small scale to a large scale. Teachers work with students, guide them in their passions, and address their mental, academic and social needs. When students become college and career ready, they make individual choices and advocate for their beliefs. Ultimately, students become active, productive citizens in our society. Teachers are responsible for imparting their knowledge to help students be successful in all avenues of life around the world. In the words of theoretical physicist, Paul Dirac, and my former honors science teacher, 'Pick a flower on Earth, and you move the farthest star.'
