Selma's story   

Selma, teacher
"My mother inspired me to become a teacher. Growing up I remember watching all the hard work, love and determination she would put into her job, and the wonderfully funny stories the children would tell her. I knew I wanted the same and what’s more fulfilling than teaching!"
