It is SIMPLE…..Teachers: YOU make a DIFFERENCE!

inspire-teach-change

School has started.

I have been out of the profession for at least six years now. I know that I made an impact on some of my students’ lives over the years.

In spite of the struggles you face with the things that are so difficult these days, be encouraged as you teach another year.

Because

Once upon a time…

I was one of those students.

My parents divorced when I was in eighth grade and for many years before that had marital problems. I enjoyed talking to my teachers and doing well, but I struggled emotionally.

I had several teachers that spoke “life” to me.  Just like you do today.

I had a P.E. teacher who allowed me to be her assistant. She let me talk and she listened.  She was someone I admired and she encouraged me to believe in myself.

I had a science teacher who allowed me to babysit her son!  She knew that my “babysitting” jobs helped with our household finances, and she trusted me with her own child. She helped build my confidence.

These ladies made me want to teach. The Lord used them in my life go from “victim” to “victor”.

YOU do make a difference, and I thank you. I know it is difficult sometimes, I know that there are many reasons to complain, but you need to know that YOU are making a difference.

I applaud you. I know many of you feel “called” into the ministry of teaching. The law can say all it wants about God not being in schools….but He is there. HE is there because YOU are there. You love your students.

May your frame be strengthened this year!!!

A “one time” junior high girl thanks you!

Which side of the Coin?

 

I am sure you have heard this: “There are two sides to every coin?

Most of us have been on both sides at one time or another.  

An employee/employer.  

Child/Parent….my favorite!  Sometimes around your parents, you feel like a twelve-year-old again.   Or when you get around your own children and they like to tease and make you feel like a very old woman!

 I have been a student, a public school teacher, a new mom, a homeschooling mom, a mom of public/private school teenagers, and a public school teacher, partially retired…in that order.  I have been on both sides of the coin, maybe several coins.  Often those coins were shiny…but sometimes very dull and scratched!
