As a 24 year vetern middle school teacher, I have always strived to provide my students with opportunities to succeed academically as well as establish the skills needed for successful life beyond school. I love what I do but as time passes, providing these opportunities have become rather expensive for me to afford. I would really love to continue inspiring young minds for the next 10 years of my teaching career.
