Voices on teaching: Answering the call to teach

Disclaimer: This initiative initially was launched and coordinated by the Raise Your Hand Texas Foundation, which in 2022 merged with and became the Charles Butt Foundation.

“You should be a teacher.” Erika Carter vividly remembers whispering this to herself at 16 years old after helping a little girl learn how to read. After that, both lives were impacted forever.
