Why Teach? Why Teach? That’s a great question! I didn’t come to the conclusion that I wanted to be a teacher until after I had already finished my AA in college. My father manages a large construction company in Tampa, and it was always assumed that I would step in as his engineer when I finished school. I had a passion for engineering while in high school. We were one of very few school in the United States to offer a four year engineering course, and I was so very lucky to have it. So when college started, that was my goal. It wasn’t until my third try at Calculus that I realized, it just was not going to happen for me. So I took a semester off, bought a house and thought long and very hard about what my next move was going to be. I choose teaching! I have always had an unspoken love for children. I love the way the think, and the way they allow their imaginations to run wild. I love the way to thrive to learn something new, and the way they can be influenced. I thought back about the teachers I had in grammar school, and thought about the way they influenced me. The instructors I had in elementary school were very attentive and passionate, and that’s the type of person I want to become. I want to teach students because I believe it will make me a better person, and because I think I would make them better people as well. I dream now of inspiring children to want to learn, and enhance themselves. I want my students to have fun and enjoy coming to class unlike the mass
Public Schools in the Rio Grande Valley should have bilingual programs as part of their curriculum. These programs would help students learn English as a second language transition into the regular classroom. One of the reasons why Public Schools in the Rio Grande Valley should have bilingual programs is because almost more than a half of the residents of the Rio Grande Valley are Spanish speakers. Cities like Mission, McAllen and Hidalgo are examples of having a high rate of…

• What is the purpose of education?
Education to me is knowledge. A person can be knowledgeable in many aspects of their lives not just what is taught it schools. Education is the foundation of the world. Without education the world would be an uninteresting, rather dull place to live. Education brings people together. It allows different people to communicate with one another. Education has been around since the beginning of human existence. It may have had a different meaning…
learn about in the health science class at school. Education isn’t limited to the obvious. We all learn from everywhere, everything, at every second of the day.
Learning is power; that is why we crave education. Even if the education we desire is not out of a book or by a teacher, we need to learn. We teach ourselves how to extend our emotional lives and make it through the chaos we are faced with throughout our lives. When people around us try tao deprive us of learning, we learn how to fight;…
can never teach a student how to learn; they can never truly prepare a student for a career, and what is even scarier is that “I hear story after story about music, and art…being cut out of the school day to make more time for the drilling and routine work” (Clinton). Standardized tests are not appropriate for any student trying to be successful in the future, whether it be in college or in the workplace.

Elaboration: the fact is that no one get no where in life without being thought. That’s why we should pay teachers good enough for the job there doing.
CONNECTION 2: teachers should get paid more because they create the basic important part in people’s life. For example why would celebrity Kim Kardashian get paid millions just for looking pretty while teachers suffer and make about just enough.

Schools need to hand out condoms to help immature teenagers. Lets face it teenagers will always be having sex no matter what. A condom will help dumb teens when they don’t have anything. Schools want to teach about sex ed but when it really comes to needing the help in a sticky situation all that the schools have taught is pointless. Parents would rather their teens use condoms given by the school then not to use anything at all.

immigrants is distorted, full of non-intellectual ideologies, stereotypes, and disadvantages. Teachers have to make sure they teach students that America is a nation of old and new immigrants. However they teach the opposite ideas in school, this allows those negative ideologies to perpetuate in the system of education. This perspective on immigrants has to change.
