I once despised teachers. Ever since I began schooling, I would bombard teachers with
questions in hopes
of unveiling the world around me; however, my inquiries often culminated in disillusioning shrugs of ignorance. Because teachers could not always offer answers, I had scorned the profession; ironically, I later found,
to my surprise and dismay,
that I loved to teach.
hrough my endeavors, I soon became proud of my passion for
as I learned that teaching is a noble and humble profession. The teacher not only trains apprentices,
but also hones own pen of erudition; only together can they fend off the armies of enigma.
When I received my first math puzzles, I was delighted by the hidden messages and logic maps. I was thrilled when the puzzles were finally deciphered and urgently gathered my family to share my findings, only to receive indifferent nods. N
evertheless, I was compelled to share my knowledge. I had discovered my love for teaching.
Eventually, as a hobby, I tutored at a math circle. T
here, I learned that the great teacher learns with his students. I struggled with my students to unearth mathematical mysteries, and, together, we discovered out weakness and worked to improve our skills. In 2010, we marched our way to the states round of MathCounts, and two continued to compete nationally. I was honored to have coached this team and proud of our accomplishments. Through this experience, I tasted the pride and grandeur of the teacher.
Some of your sentences were serious run-ons, so I fixed them. Some commas needed and a few grammar mistakes. It's "Myriad questions", not "myriad of." That's a really common mistake.
"but also hones own pen of erudition; only together can they fend off the armies of enigma."
That part REALLY confused me. What are you saying?
Good start overall, but still needs some editing, some awkward phrases, etc.
