Semicolons, commas, or what?

0

I wrote the following sentences for a letter of introduction and I love the cadence of the phrasing.  The phrases following "to teach" are meant to expound on what it means "to teach".  So should I separate them with commas, semicolons, hyphens or what?  It needs to look professional since it is part of an application.

 

"We have such a wonderful privilege: to teach, to instill a passionate thirst for knowledge, to pass on a legacy of integrity and character to the next generation, to nourish the gifts and talents of every student in our charge so that the world may one day benefit from their achievements."
