Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

I chose education as my carrer of choice because I started working at YMCA and found out it was my passion. Teaching is what I find rewarding and exciting. No two days are alike and no two students are alike-I like change and differences! Lastly, teaching is a career that I can learn everyday from my students and colleagues.
