We Teach

Day 19  #SOL17


Surrounded by mounting pressures, we as teachers need to remember why we are in the classroom:


We are needed

We are passionate

We are loved

We laugh

We cry

We inspire

Everyday is different

We are there for that

one student

Who needs us

at that moment

to be our best.

We care

We give

We teach!

    Thank you for sharing this, today. I feel like many colleagues are starting to let those late winter “blahs” take over them right now. Thank you for helping keep perspective in a positive manner.

      Tis the season of the blahs & before we know it the year is over. Need to slow down right now.

    So true! And you never know who that one student will be. We plan and plan but can never fully anticipate our impact. Thanks for this lovely poem/reminder!


  3. It’s amazing the impact we make, that we usually do not know until years after the fact! Thanks for your poem 🙂
