Stephen Bell (Oklahoma Corps ’13)

I love the people in my community. As I've grown close to my students and some of their families I have come to cherish my relationship with them. Teaching is both a stimulating joy and a grueling trial. I love the kids and am overwhelmed with the challenges they are faced with each day. But those things spur more motivation to see my students do well and makes it so much more beautiful when they do. I must cling to hope, that I feel is always in flux, and fight past my imperfections to teach, listen to, learn from, and help the kids to be the best they can. I believe education is taken for granted, but is a powerful tool that provides many opportunities.
