The aspiration to become a science teacher started about 5 years ago for me. I was waiting for the bus to take me to a job that I despised and wanted to just go home. I started pondering on what I wanted to do with my life and I remembered the fun I had in science class. My teacher's always made science class fun and captivating. Because of these memories I decided that I wanted to be a science teacher.

I love science and learning about how things in our world come about. I would like to share this passion with my students. I believe that I can encourage children to explore their world and learn about all the interesting things going on around them. I plan on being a hands-on teacher and doing lots of experiments in my classroom.

Another reason I would like to teach science is that I would like to make learning fun.

Teaching science will give me many opportunities to capture my student's attention. I believe I can make science an interesting and fun subject for our future generations. For example, building a volcano and learning about how volcanoes benefit/destroy life on earth. Teaching children that things can be destructive, but also be beneficial to earth is very important.

One more reason I would like to teach is because I believe I can make a difference in the lives of children. I want to be a teacher that makes the classroom a place that students want to be in. I remember how my teachers believed and encouraged me to want to learn new things. Teaching will give me the opportunity to give back to the community by being a positive role model like my teachers were.

The love of science and learning new things...
