Changing Lives

teacher in classroom

Teaching helps to change students’ lives.

Why teach? For many educators the answer is simple.

They want to make a difference.

They want to influence lives.

They want to have the satisfaction of knowing their work means something.

“Think of your best teachers, coaches or other adults — other than your parents — who have helped make you who you are today,” said Michael Struchen, Indian River Education Association. “There is no better way to impact the future of this nation.”
