HUMANS OF THE U: CALBERT BECK

“I became a teacher to change the world. I feel that one should give back and, in my case, I knew I wanted to work with kids. Being a minority male, I felt that I could exemplify important things for young kids during a crucial time of their development. Something I did not have until junior high. My favorite thing about teaching is those “aha” moments when a child finally gets it, especially if it took perseverance and hard work.”
