Why I teach (Why I became a teacher)

The video encapsulates the messages of “You can’t” that our students often face from their environment, and how just one teacher who connects with them and tells them, “You can!” can change their trajectory for life. This teacher’s video and subsequent YouTube channel is a reflection of the many teachers in Cajon Valley who tell their students “You can!” and inspire them daily to do so.
