We teachers sometimes don't know what becomes of our students years down the road.
I think a lot about them, wondering what they're doing now...
I just happened to find this song while doing research for something else. I hit the play button and before I knew it, these questions popped into my mind...
Did I make a difference in their lives?
Was I a good role model?
Did I keep the "bar high"?
Were my expectations consistent?
Did I expect things from my students that I'd expect of my own children?
Did they realize that my purpose was to lead them down a path to help them become productive, responsible adults?
One of the most important questions that I think about is....
Do they know how MUCH I care about them?
The minute I heard the song and really listened to the words, I pinned it on Pinterest and put it on my Facebook page.
I must have played it 20 times and each time I thought about those who've passed through my classes and all the students around the world, who will soon start a new school year.
As I listened to it, tears streamed down my face..... very happy tears.
So, of course, I set out to find other videos about teachers.
With the beginning of a new school year approaching...
How are YOU feeling?
I know you're busy, but take a few minutes to watch these videos.
Good teachers need to be UPLIFTED
Good teachers need A PAT ON THE BACK
Good teachers need to know they make a difference in children's lives,
but it's sometimes
not apparent ...
Take a few minutes and watch these videos. :)
