I also am a mom to an almost 1-year old pup, Sully. He's a shih tzu and the cutest puppy in the world (seriously).
I have decided to be a teacher because I love seeing that a-ha! moment when someone learns something. I also want to be the teacher that will always stand up for what is right for my students.
My favorite education moment when I was in school would have to be when I was in 2nd grade and I had really bad separation anxiety from my mom and my teacher used to always sit with me and tell me about how she has anxiety and was just like me when she was younger. She made me feel like I wasn't alone or weird and I want to have the same qualities that my 2nd grade teacher had.
