Write an essay where you tell us about the moment you realized you wanted to become a teacher.

As a young child, education was always the highlight of my day. I have continuously enjoyed being in the classroom, weather I was succeeding or not. I have failed and excelled in various levels of classes, however I have never given up. Education provides learning experiences one would not learn anywhere else. I have learned my strength and weaknesses as a student and how to overcome those in an educational way. I am truly passionate about education and want nothing more than to be able to help others be inspired by it as well. Besides my mother completing one semester of college, I am the only person in my immediate family to take on the adventure of entering college. Being able to get a higher education in college has been something I will never take advantage of. My dream is to become a teacher to help children enjoy education the way I have.
