What's your WHY?

I was recently inspired by my new blogging friend, 
Sarah, from A Rocky Top Teacher 

Sarah talks about her WHYs in this
Sarah shared many of her reasons, and then challenged us to share ours as well.
It got me to thinking about why I do what I do.

Even though I am not in a classroom on a daily basis anymore, I am still an educator.
And the ideals that led me into teaching some 30 years ago, are still driving me today.
I want to make a difference.
I want children to believe that they have the power to make things happen for themselves.
I want them to believe they CAN!
It's what keeps me going.
So that's my WHY.
Why are YOU an educator?
I'd love to hear your WHYs.
Check out more stories here.


  1. I love this post! I got into teaching because I also wanted to make a difference in students live and help them succeed in life. It's good to keep in mind the why especially when having a tough day or two. TeacherMsH

  2. Oops students' lives. It's hard to comment on blog when using your phone.

  3. I choose education every day because I want to help students grow and believe that they can make a difference in the world in which they live. I want them to know that they have it within themselves to rise above circumstances and challenges if they will just believe. I want them to know that they are not alone, but that there are people who are there to support them on the journey. I want students to know their why- their purpose.
