Why do you teach? I love teenagers. I have a lot of energy and an outgoing personality so teaching enables me to live that out everyday. I have always hoped to be able to minister to youth in some capacity. So combined with my love for Spanish and my nerdy grammar tendencies and you've got a teacher!
