· Details about the teacher I will never forget who inspired me to enter the profession:
This was my high school Calculus teacher.  She was absolutely amazing in everyway possible.  She was always there for her students whether it was before or after school and she always made time to really show she cared about us.  This teacher always was interested in our lives outside of school and she would tell us some funny stories about her life.  She always challenged us more than what we thought we could handle, but it really paid off in the long run.  I still talk to this teacher today and have told her over and over again she is the reason I went into the education profession.
