"The rewards of being a teacher might not come daily and you might have to search for small wins every day, but they are around us all the time. As a teacher, you have to recognize those small wins and be passionate about the impact you have every single day on all the students and people that you encounter. You are a leader in your classroom and all eyes are on you to model positivity, high expectations and consistency, while being an effective educator who is constantly learning and growing within the profession."
