I figure this could get some good stories and some good conversation on something light and happy. When was that moment when you knew you wanted to be an educator? Mine was sitting at my kitchen table a few years ago tutoring my neighbor. She was doing very well except in Geometry, and she worked with me for a year and ended up with a B+ in the class. Her mother is a former Kindergarten teacher, and suggested that I get into education myself. Since I'm really slow to pick up on signs, it took me awhile to sign up for education classes at the school I got my BAs from (went to law school in STL).
