There is so much more to teaching than showing up and sharing a lesson with the hope your students will get it.
It requires LOVE!
If it’s hard to genuinely care for each child in your classroom (even the behavioral ones), then it’s time to figure out why or simply leave.
In addition to teaching, I AM ALL I CAN BE for my students: TEACHER, MENTOR, COUNSELOR, and PARENTAL FIGURE. My teaching contract doesn’t require that explicitly but it’s understood that to truly be effective in my role, I must BE ALL I CAN BE! They need me…❤️
I AM GRATEFUL!
