  • What inspired you to become a teacher?
     
    “I had a few exceptional teachers while I was in school. They helped me find my own potential and taught me the values of hard work and positive personal relationships,” Addison said. “As I matured, I learned that many young people need important adult figures in their lives to bring out the best in them and inspire them; I hope I can fill that role in some students’ lives.” 
     
    What is most challenging as a teacher? Why?
     
    Addison said what is most challenging about being a teacher is starting off without knowing the students.
     
    “It’s difficult to develop lessons and keep kids focused if I don’t know their names, strengths or interests!” Addison said, adding that the challenge is resolved with time.
     
    What teaching moment is most memorable?
     
    “While I was student teaching a student wrote a very interesting short story and dedicated it to me. I was touched and I felt like I was doing something right!”
