“Because your voice is an opinion taken into account.
Because it is a place where values matter.
Because it is place where you can develop your faith.
Because your participation, your effort and not only your memory matter.
Is a good decision important in your life?
If we want to teach children committed to society and children who act according to their beliefs.
If we want to teach supportive children.
If we want to teach children who think for themselves and reach their own conclusions.
If we want to teach children in this way, we must first be an example; a teacher is more than a person transferring knowledge, a teacher is a model.
I would like to be that kind of teacher; therefore, I think I made the right decision.”
