When I think about the people who have made an impact on my life, I always think about my senior high school English teacher. My teacher always encouraged my writing, and went out of her way to make me feel special. Looking back on that time, I think she must have known that she could help a shy young girl find her voice and her place in this world. It's hard to deny the kind of impact a great teacher can make on the lives of her students. People want to become teachers for a number of different reasons, but at the core of it all is a selfless desire to help others learn and grow. My grandmother and two of my aunts were teachers. They often shared stories of their classroom experiences, and they beamed with pride when they told stories about some of their favorite students. I always enjoyed hearing stories about my grandmother's former students, and what they went on to do with their lives. If you're thinking about becoming a teacher, you too can share in the growth and blossoming of young minds. For my family members, this was one of the most noble of professions. No matter if you're an undergraduate college student, a graduate student, or you're just looking for a career change, you can find your place in an educational environment. Teaching English in foreign countries is a great way to begin a rewarding career and experience the world. This usually only requires some certification. There are plenty of programs in your community and online that can provide you with the training and education you need to get started in the field of education. It's always a good idea to find an area of specialization early on. You can work on the administrative side, or you can select a subject and a grade level to teach. Different career choices require different levels of education and hands-on work experience. It's a good idea to speak with a career counselor to map out your future educational needs.

Happy 20th, Harry Potter, and thanks for teaching me English
I was already an adult (legally, at least), when the first Harry Potter novel came out on June 26, 1997. Even though I haven't technically grown up with the books, the franchise starring the wizard with round glasses has a special place in my heart.
