My motivation for teaching:
I teach because I expose young people to new ideas. I get to share a life experience with interesting, fun, surprising, and sometimes frustrating people. I can act childish or deranged and all is excused. I am rewarded for being creative. I have a really hard job and I do the best I can.

Most of all, at the end of the day I can say that I may have made a real difference in somebody's life and tomorrow I get to try again.
