What Else She Said

So I have a sister who is a social worker, a sister who is a nurse, and I became a teacher. I was a painting major, but my parents told me I couldn't do it unless I also got a teaching certificate, something to fall back on. Because [teaching] has traditionally been a woman's profession, it has no prestige in the United States. There is a movement among women and men like me who feel, yes, it is a profession, it's a calling. As a woman I feel I am among the people who are transforming public education.
