Teaching To Change Lives

I’m working toward becoming a public school teacher. A big reason why I want to do this is to impact the future of my nation with good. I want to help my students to have a passion for knowledge which will help them become successful, interesting and caring adults. Long ago Daniel Webster spoke of the importance of affecting the next generation:
“If we work upon marble, it will perish; if we work upon brass, time will efface it; if we rear temples, they will crumble into dust; but if we work upon immortal minds and instill into them just principles, we are then engraving that upon tablets which no time will efface, but will brighten and brighten to all eternity.”
-Daniel Webster
