Excerpt from Teacher of the Year application
To me, teaching is important because:
Teaching is important to me because it allows me to help students realize their true potential. It is important because I am able to provide a safe and accepting environment for my students to reach beyond what they may think is possible. I am afforded the incredible privilege of teaching students that they are capable of learning and of achieving things far greater than just reading, writing, and arithmetic. I teach them that their abilities outweigh their disabilities. I teach students that they can be independent, they can dream big, and they can make a positive impact to the world with their amazing gifts and talents.
