I rarely talk about my job on my blog mainly due to privacy reasons but this is a special week – teacher appreciation week. I will say that I feel love from my students a lot and do not even need a week but this week has been one of my best ever. Last week I battled a terrible cold, tired legs from running, and a run down body. I took Friday off to recover and rest up and came back Monday refreshed and ready to go. I was greeted with a bunch of cards Monday morning in my mailbox. I took them up to my classroom not knowing what they were. I sat there Monday morning with tears streaming down my face. Yes it was an assignment for a class but those special words from my students meant more to me then they will ever know. Sometimes being a teacher is a thankless job and to be honest I do not do it for that. I do it for my love of learning and passing that love on to high school students. But these cards touched me more than I can ever say. I sat there knowing that even though it’s tough God has me right where he wants me and I feel extremely privileged to be able to work with each and everyone of the students that I see. So if you know a teacher…..just let them know that they are appreciated this week. A small thanks can go so far.
