I decided to be a teacher one day after being a substitute teacher in a high school in Bedford Stuyvesant Brooklyn. One of my student’s mother expressed her deepest gratitude for the difference I made in her daughter’s life. I was really touched and inspired to do more. Right then I realized I was making a difference a great impact in my community. Teaching is a rewarding experience for me. Everything I do is for the students. I enjoy working with students and helping them reach for their dreams through education.
