My motivation comes from realizing that what I teach someone today will be expressed by that person as they care for others, especially for the children who seek their care. Our work lives on through those whom we are privileged to teach. We are responsible for developing not only their knowledge, but also their enthusiasm, dedication, and motivation for future learning. We can even influence their sense of ethics and fair play. When we do it well, we make life better for future generations, and we ourselves learn much from those whom we teach. We teachers are very luck people.
