What inspired you to become an Educator? Everyone has his/her reasons for choosing to become a Educator or Mentor. Everyone has a path that they took before deciding to go ahead and pursue it.

As a young student when I first enrolled in college, I was told by my family that I should try to be a medical doctor or a pharmacist. I spent three very frustrating and agonizing years taking countless Chemistry and Biology classes that I totally despised. Finally, as I was sitting down with my mentor, I realizing that my true passion and calling has always been to teach and mentor those who are less informed than me, and that was something that I could see myself doing for the rest of my life. Now as an Education major, I find going to class a more enjoyable experience. I am more attentive and engaging in all that I do because it is something that I have a passion for. That is pretty my journey to becoming an Educator. What is your story??????
