What inspired you to become a teacher?

Teaching is an amazing profession

So tell us why you became a teacher.

We'd really like to hear what inspired you to get into education. Teaching is a high pressured career and sometimes it can be easy to forget why you joined in the first place. We'd like to take you back to that lightbulb moment when you just knew that teaching was the right path for you.
