Abstract

Like most educators today, a former teacher inspired me. This teacher taught a subject I thought was boring and turned it into something interesting and meaningful. He made me realize the power that an educator can have on an individual. His approach to education in the classroom changed the way I viewed education and its importance. Each person in his class could feel comfortable contributing and participating in the classroom setting. He had a way of connecting with students on an individual level regardless of their personality differences. I became an educator so that I could have a positive influence on those students who are not fortunate enough to have the type of role models I had in my life. As an administrator, understanding why you chose the educational field is an important trait if success is going to occur within the building you lead.
