November 6th: Share a quote or verse that has inspired you and tell us why
“I began to realize how important it was be an enthusiast in life…if you are interested in something no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be” Roald Dahl
This quote inspired me because it reminds me of my passion in wanting to become a teacher. I remember getting some rejection letters and not getting into teachers college until my third try, but I didn’t give up. I was determined to follow my passion and knew that it would happen some day. Even now as I’m in my 15th year of teaching, I am still as passionate as ever. I am passionate about the kids I teach, the things I teach and how I teach. You gotta be in it to win it and I feel like this quote is a good reminder and touchstone to look back on and reread to remind me when I need it.
