This Is My School

This is my school:

Teachers walk down the halls with hearts full of love. They greet each other. They laugh and cry together. They are all working toward a common goal: teaching our beloved kids.

We teach them every day with passion, patience, kindness, gentleness… giving a little tough love when needed. But it’s always love. We encourage them to aim higher and then give them the tools to help them reach new heights. We measure success based on individual victories. Tied shoes, singing in the microphone, a high score on a quiz.

We all know we are meant to be here in this moment.

We are dedicated, hard-working advocates for our kids. And that’s what they are – OUR KIDS.

Some days are tough. We go through storms. We suffer loss. Our scores aren’t always what we hope for. But here’s the thing… I don’t want to be anywhere else. I don’t just give 8-hour days to a job. I have dedicated my life to MY KIDS. Not just to teach them, but to show them love every day.

And the great thing is…everyone in my school feels the exact same way.

This is my school.
