I became a teacher because I started enjoying to learn and enjoyed school about the time I entered college. Before long I realized I enjoyed helping others learn and I felt I was a good communicator, which is necessary in order to be a teacher. I enjoy kids in general and watching them progress academically. It gratifies me knowing I helped in that endeavor to some extent, along with our team of teachers in the Booneville Schools. I also realized kids represented the next generation of americans/leaders which cannot be underestimated. The economic and military viability of our country depends on education. Other reasons I became a teacher involve benefits; decent pay, holidays, summer time - off and decent retirement.
