Why Did You Become an Educator? In college, I came across academics who really helped to open up this world for me. They helped us (students) enlarge our creative power and our conception of what is possible, enriched our intellectual imagination, and made us critical co-investigators in dialogue with them. I really admired these academics and wanted to play these roles in the lives of students.
