Why do I teach?

Installment #4:

I teach because it is honorable.

It sounds self-righteous, even sanctimonious, but I’m doing good work. I’m in a time-honored profession. I mold lives. I’m a positive force for the present, and the future.

I feel good because I’m contributing to the future and our collective well-being. I don’t think it’s terrible to say, or point out, that teaching is noble. It is the only profession that paves the way for every other profession.

I enjoying teaching and I take pride in being a teacher–it is truly an admirable career choice.
