Who or what inspired you to become a teacher? The children! They inspire me a lot. Ever since I could remember I’ve always wanted to be a teacher, especially an early childhood teacher. I want to be in their shoes and see what they see through their perspective.
My best day in the classroom was when…. I had just returned from my vacation and as I entered the classroom all of the children came running towards me to give me hugs and kisses. That was the best feeling ever!
If you could have one teacher superpower what would it be? Hmmm….. to have so many hands that I could hug all my kids at the same time.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? I love books, so I read a lot.
What else would you like to share about yourself or profession? Even as a educator, you never stop learning.
