Am a person who believes that the single most important factor determining a student's achievement is not the colour of his or her skin or where he or she comes from, but who the child's teacher is. I've been lucky to have teachers who believed and still believe in my potential and who encouraged me to become who I am. Am a teacher now because of those good people.
In this profession it is important to realise that in 'testing' we may expect some people to fail, but when we teach, it is in the hope that everyone will succeed.
