Why I teach: Lake County 2nd-grade teacher says job is an 'honor'

ORLANDO, Fla. – Calling all educators! News 6 wants to spotlight local heroes tasked with teaching the next generation.

We are asking teachers across Central Florida to share the reasons they educate children entitled “Why I Teach.”

The idea began last year as a way to celebrate teachers during challenging times, and it led to dozens of inspiring messages of hope across the community.

Over the next few weeks, we will highlight more of our teachers on TV and on ClickOrlando.com.

Teachers can explain “Why I Teach” using the form below. Your response may be showcased on News 6!

We will reach out to some of you in the coming days.

Thanks for all you do!
