I thought the most interesting part about chapter one was when they discussed why people become teachers and the rewards of being a teacher. I have thought many times if I really want to be a teacher and found it interesting why others chose the profession. The rewards were also an interesting part because it pointed out the obvious and also the physiological aspects of being a teacher.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
