Everyday Heroes

We might all be able to think back to a teacher who made a difference in our lives and we can probably all recall a teacher who maybe hurt our feelings or was considered "mean". Even in college, there were favorite professors everyone tried to get. I think in education today we have so many more obstacles to face with higher testing standards and more children coming to us from broken homes or just struggling and often heartbreaking situations. I have to remind myself that God put me here in THIS classroom and these children in MY life and He is using ME to make a difference. Whether you realize it or not, you are a hero to many of the children in your class. Think about that as you get ready to start a new week. And remember that the children who are the hardest to love are the ones needing your love the most. They may not remember what you teach them but they will always remember how you made them feel

God bless you! At times, I lament that I didn't join the Marines (I took the ASFAB so they followed me my entire senior year, trying to entice me to join) because I'd be retired by now. Then, God (sometimes in the form of a friend) reminds me that He is in control and I'm exactly where He wanted me to be at this point in my life. Merry Christmas!
