Feels Good to be Needed
I've been down with teaching lately. Not from the teaching kids aspect, I love teaching kids. It's the paperwork, three hour meetings, seemingly endless data analysis, teacher bashing every news media source, etc that is beating me up.
Today, I woke up at 5:30, because someone needs me...and it feels good. I'm taking one of my students to the Science and Engineering fair at a local college campus. I wrote up the note, and told his aunt I would be there at 8:00. On Friday morning he says, "I'll be on my porch at 7:45 waiting for you Mrs. F."
Seriously LOVE.THIS.KID. Helping kids realize their potential, being a champion for them is why I became a teacher.
