Colleen Pavao: There has never been a job that I have held in the past that can compare to working in education. Becoming a teacher would mean that I would have a greater opportunity to make a difference in students' lives. Jessica Zitano-Pimental: There’s nothing like watching comprehension light up a child’s face.
