Who/What inspired you to go into education?

Mrs. Owens, Miss Flamm, Coach Dean, Mr. Slater, Mrs. Greenwood, Mr. Furch, Mrs. Tucker, Mr. Thomas and Mr. Thompson were all superior examples. I had a plethora of great teachers that were very inspirational. My sister is an amazing teacher and she inspired me.
