I repeated this one to myself many days last year because I needed a reminder. I will start off the year reminding myself of this and looking for those students who need a little more love in their lives.
So many children out there don't have a champion. If I can be that for one child, I will feel as if I've accomplished something in life.
Just a reminder of why I do my job. They need me. They need consistency and love and boundaries and support.
Finally a reminder of why education is so vital. It's the only way we can change our world for the better.
So my fellow teachers, good luck this year. I hope you touch one life this school year and help to change the world. I hope you find yourself a happy place amongst the grading of papers and planning of lessons and calling/emailing home. I hope you can share your happy place and keep it alive throughout the school year. I will need to revisit this mid-year. Maybe I should schedule this to reappear in November? :)
Happy 2015-2016 School Year Everyone!
