Why I'm a Teacher

I definitively remember the moment I decided to be a teacher. I guess you could call it an epiphany. I was on the 8th floor of the Laird Norton building, overlooking the Puget Sound in my boss' office. It was strikingly beautiful. This was the next step for me, and I didn't want it. I wanted to work with people, and teach. I just knew it. I love teaching. And I think it's important you know it. I'm not teaching because I can't do anything else, I'm teaching because there is nothing else I'd rather do.

A few months after my epiphany, in October 2006 I started working as a long term substitute teacher at Evergreen High School. I've decided to include a picture of the Puget Sound Overlook. Just quiet yourself and think, what do I want to do?
