It was as if my bas vibes were sent across the universe and straight to this student. This was the pick me up that I needed and gave me the boost of energy. There will be days that I hate being a teacher, but I will always love teaching. I think that is the one thing I need to remind myself when things in the "Teacher World" get crazy. Teaching is exhilarating and awesome. I have a chance to make an impact on students in ways that I will not realize until much later in life.
For all of you out there that might behaving a rough start of the school year, remember that you are making a difference in the lives of so many different students. You might not see any results until years later, but do not let the small things get in your way of making an impact on the lives of the people that matter most each day at school.
Have a great week!
Yes, it's texts, notes, and comments like that that make even the worst days worthwhile. COngratulations on making a difference. You should know you make a difference to numerous teachers like myself who read and follow your blog.ReplyDelete
So true, it is those moments that remind you of your influence and impact on young peoples' lives. Blogged about this exact thing a while back. I keep a letter from a former student pinned up by my desk as a reminder.ReplyDelete
