While in high school, I had my heart set on a career in fashion design or becoming a neurosurgeon. However, soon after taking an elective class call called ‘Teachers Assistant’ I was given the opportunity to experience the responsibilities a teacher has and what one should know in this field of study. This is when I realized I wanted to become a teacher. During the semester, I was assigned to a first grade classroom with twenty-two students who were eager to learn and made my time there memorable. This experience not only changed my career path but my life.
