Becoming a Teacher
Becoming a teacher is a life choice, a vocation or as some say a calling. Teaching becomes part of you and teachers have a real desire to make a difference and help others succeed. Teaching leaves a lasting legacy because the pupils you teach today become the leaders, innovators and thinkers or tomorrow.
