I had an amazing teacher in the sixth grade. Her name was Mrs. Maske. Mathematics has always been my favorite subject and it came easily to me. One day Mrs. Maske gave the class a new seating chart. I was seated beside a girl who had just moved to our school named Anna. Anna was not very strong in math and needed extra help. After I finished my work for the day Mrs. Maske would have me help Anna with her math.
One day when I was working with Anna, she looked up at Mrs. Maske with the brightest eyes and said, ”I GET IT NOW!” This made my day! I knew from that moment on that I wanted to be a teacher, all because Mrs. Maske saw the potential I had to teach another student and gave me the opportunity to find that potential myself.
