Opportunities are like sunrises. If you wait too long, you miss them." I got an opportunity to become a teacher. I just grabbed the opportunity and started my career with lots of joy and love. Teaching is a very noble profession that shapes the character and future of an individual learner. "A good teacher is like a candle which consumes itself to light the way for others."
As a first year teacher with the young brains I am glad every decision I made led me here. Two things I love about being a teacher is the joy the children bring and the incessant challenges they pose to your perspective.
I grew up with reading and enjoy the reign of Harry Potter. Reading is the art of my life and this joy I fight to share with my learners.
