I Will Always Be a Teacher at Heart

Vivian Reyna

I’m a busy person so when I’m on the bus, I take care of bills and return calls. I’m organizing a group of friends from church to buy backpacks with school supplies for the school in Guatemala where I used to teach. I will always be a teacher at heart and no country can take that away from me.

Since I was a little girl, I dreamed of being a teacher. My family was so poor, but I worked hard to put myself through college and obtain my teaching certificate. I dream about going back to my country to teach again, but I’m also grateful for the opportunities here.
