    why teach?

    Marilyn: This was the very same question I was asked on my first day of grad school after having made the decision to change careers after 20 years in the business world. What came out of me that night is something I have included in my portfolio and something I learned about myself that I never even knew existed. I decided to teach because I was unhappy in my chosen profession and realized that was missing was not something I needed to have but something I needed to GIVE. Your debate about whether or not to teach can only be answered with some soul searching, heart wrenching questions, and some deeply felt answers. Good luck! I never looked back since the day I made my choice and now, I am a teacher! I've never been prouder to say who I am!
