School: W.H. Gaston Middle School
My sole purpose for becoming a teacher was my belief in all students possessing the ability to learn and be successful in college. As a teacher in a Title 1 school, I am faced with many different challenges and so are the students. Sometimes these students have no one in their lives to push them, encourage them or help them recognize their full potential, therefore as their teacher I strive to create a positive environment conducive to high academic achievement as well as be a positive influence for the limited amount of time that I have them every single day.
