I was a teacher once. It’s true. I taught eighth grade my last four years of teaching. Some think teaching middle schoolers would be hell. Honestly, I loved my kids. Some were funny. Some were troubled. And, quite frankly, some just pulled on my heart strings.
And, most of them listened to me.
What an opportunity teachers have that they can impart to young minds and hearts. Even beyond academia.
Thank you, thank you educators for giving up going out to lunch, high-paying salaries, and your own cash buying supplies for our children.
You are the real world changers.
