My devoted mother gave me a paperweight (with the price tag of $2.49 still on it) that reads, “Teach like the world depends on it.” She and my father were my first teachers. This 1 inch x 1 inch paperweight sits on my desk at Iowa Western Community College. I whole-heartedly believe in this message. Teaching is a beautiful, challenging profession. Every day a future leader sits in my classroom. So, yes, the world really does depend on my teaching.
