When the Days Get Tough
Your job is one of the most important jobs in our society.
When the days get tough, think back to why you began teaching. You knew you could make a difference in the lives of children.
When the days get tough, think back to the children who left you a note on your desk or told you they wished they could go home and live with you.
When the days get tough, think back to the student who came into your class failing and was promoted successfully to the next grade at the end of the year.
Children need the positive guidance you have to give them. You have had many victories because of your dedication to love the seemingly unlovable, manage into obedience the out of control, listen to the frustrated parent, find the funding for that special fieldtrip and teach the apparent unteachable. Let the memories of the lives you have helped change drive your desire to continue to gift your students with success!
