Amber Scott, Third Grade Teacher: I love seeing students make cross curricular connections, it shows me that true learning is taking place both in their minds and in their lives. I was initially attracted to the teaching profession, once I learned of the impact that a single teacher could have on the educational outcomes of students in inner city public schools. While I still believe that is true, I am inspired to stay in the classroom because of my students. I learn more from them each day about what makes each of us special and unique as individuals.
