Ever wonder why a certain teacher wanted to become what they are today? The Raider Reader asked, and each teacher gave quite different answers as to why.
Science teacher Mr. Alec Mazikewich stated that he wanted to become a teacher because he likes helping people.
“I like the earth sciences and helping people, this is the only job where I can do both,” says Mazikewich.
Science teacher Mrs. Nancy Burkett stated that she has always loved science and wanted to share that love with all her students, but this was not her first plan.
“I was going for environmental science, but then I got married and didn’t go to grad school,” says Burkett.
Math teacher Mr. Paul Sokoloski stated that he wanted to become a teacher because he likes helping people.
“I became a teacher to help students who are struggling. Also, I like helping people learn math”, says Sokoloski.
Art teacher Sarah Dibble-Camburn stated that it came naturally. It was not her original plan to be an art teacher. She also did a lot of things before being an art teacher like being a horse trainer and a vet assistant.
“When Mr. Harvey retired, I wanted to try being an art teacher in high school. It is very interesting and I have no regrets,” says Camburn.
