"One of the most rewarding part of my job is building genuine relationships with my students, where you're no longer 'just' their teacher, but actually a support system for them. I become like a secondary parent to some of my students who really want a consistent adult in their life and someone they feel 100 percent comfortable confiding in. There's nothing more rewarding than when you're sitting in the audience at their talent show or at their soccer game and you're the one that they turn to for a thumbs up!" — Courtney Hammell, New Jersey
