Why I love to teach

I get to share the subject I love with young people every day. Teaching at Shattuck-St. Mary’s is especially fun because of the diversity we have. Our students have perspectives from all over the world so the same event is seen differently by many of our students. It is great to hear the different perspectives from around the world in my classes.
