I have learned that the most important part of my job as a teacher was to make sure that the kids knew that I cared about them and that they could become whatever they desired in life. Knowing that you are loved, respected and have potential, no matter what obstacles we face, give not only young children hope, but others as well.
I loved my job and retired only because it wasn't financially advantageous for me to remain working.
