Why do you teach? First and foremost, this is the gifting and calling God has placed on my life. I want to honor that and be obedient to His direction. I find it is so amazing that God is allowing me to be a part in the shaping and molding of His kids into the leaders, world changers, parents, and innovators of tomorrow. Plus, I'm absolutely wild about looking deeply into literature - what's the author really trying to say? How is that subject symbolic? What does that relationship represent? Aaahhhh!!!! I love literature and I love how we all come from different backgrounds and different experiences allowing us to view the exact same piece of literature with new interpretations and new depths.
