"I went from living in a homeless shelter to roaming the school halls without a purpose. I was an angry young man with low expectations for myself.  Yet, my mediocre academic performance was not indicative of my intelligence, but I just needed someone to believe in me when I didn't believe in myself.  I needed someone to see the potential that I could not see.  I needed a "Teacher with a Purpose."
