    “I am always trying to learn and appreciate things around me. Mr. Lee, my ESOL teacher in high school, is my inspiration to be a teacher, and he inspired many of my values and principles, especially in learning and teaching. He helped me to be a good student and teacher, and I cannot wait to tell Mr. Lee that I am a teacher just like he once was.”
