"My passion for teaching children comes from the feeling of fulfillment I had when first teaching my autistic nephew how to read. Seeing his eyes light up and knowing that I was able to make a difference by spending one on one time with him was really incredible. Now I see every student in that light. This is someone's child, brother, sister, cousin. They need to be cared for and educated by people who want to be there. That would best describe my passion. It's not only what I do - it's what I need to do."
"Teaching children is my life's mission. This is not just a job to me. This is something that I need to do on a daily basis. All children are precious, but I'm particularly drawn to helping those who need it the most, and children with intellectual disabilities needs someone who cares about them and is invested in their growth and education. I don't think that most people have that capacity for patience and compassion, and I do, so I think it's my calling, a chance to do good in the world using something that I have that others don't."
"My passion for teaching came first from my brother when he was diagnosed with Autism. Seeing what he went through, I wanted to be the teacher that cared about these students. My passion for teaching also came from working at the daycare. I loved watching my student's eyes light up when they finally understood the lesson we were teaching."
That must be an incredibly rewarding moment as a teacher. Nice description - your passion really shines through :)
