Don’t think that you don’t matter
Don’t think that the kids don’t care
Don’t listen to the lies in your head that tell you you should stop teaching
I had a professor for one year in college and then kept in touch on Facebook mostly
He died three or four years after I met him. He did more for me in that one year of professorship than he probably knew. When he died, I was hear broken.
Teachers, we matter. The students won’t always tell you, heck they might even cuss you out, hit you, or call you names. Just know that you matter. You are loved.
