Defining Moment in my Education
I knew I wanted to be a teacher since I was very little. I always played school at home and as I got older my greatest heroes were my teachers. I had amazing teachers as I grew up who inspired me more and more through out my education. The best teacher of all was my mother who was a teacher for many years.
