I have been teaching for 20 years and it is the profession I was called to enter. I love so many things about teaching most of all my students. What I could not accept is the slow process of change in the bureaucracy as well as the lack of the teacher's voice in decision making. This led me to become the Teachers' Union president. This position has given me a global perspective and a bird's eye view of what we can do to become the profession we should be.
