WHY YOU WANT TO WORK WITH TEENS:  Despite what they may think now, being a teenager is kind of the best: it's okay to explore who you are and what you want from your life, and to be shamelessly excited and enthusiastic things.  Also, many of the most fun and sometimes the best books are geared towards teens, and I'd love to help them discover these books and all that books can teach them about being good people.
