Why I Want to be a Teacher

Why not? :)

Blackboard & chalk

There are many reasons as to why I want to become a teacher. The most important reason is I believe it would be a very rewarding job being able to teach the younger children (Kindergarden or first grade) the vital things that they will use for the rest of their lives. Teachers are able to teach the children not only how to read and write but things such as sharing, kindness, leadership, following the rules, respect and honesty, just to name a few. Another important reason I am choosing teaching as my career is that no other job allows you to play with children all day, have summers and important holidays off, as well as giving the children someone to look up to and have a positive imfluence on. Many people as why would you want to become a teacher? I reply, everybody remembers their elementary school teachers and have good, funny memories of being in elementary school, that is a good enough reason for me to want to be a teacher! I absolutely love children and I love the idea of being a positive influence in the childrens lives, not only is teaching a rewarding job but exciting as well! Everyday in the life of a teacher is a unique, new challenge!
