Nov 23

Tonight, I'll keep it short and sweet (and to the point):

I am thankful that I will NEVER, EVER be the kind of teacher that I have for my class tonight. He is a teacher who deliberately embarrasses students for being "over-achievers" or a teacher who picks on quiet classmates. I really pray that I will be an encouragement to my students to always give 110% on assignments. I am thankful that I recognize that as educators, it's our own fault that students sometimes give half efforts or fail to participate in class discussions. I am thankful for the educators in my life who never made me feel the way I left class tonight...and the teachers who make me want to be the best teacher I can be.

Elaine, As the old saying goes...........
Every dog has it day.
YOU will make a great teacher.

I began blogging several years ago in search of new friends who, like me, were having a difficult time getting pregnant. Five years, 2 miscarriages, 4 failed IUI's, and a doctor who told us "It will never happen" later, we are the proud parents of Kade and Kohen. They are each an example of God's absolute perfection. We thank God where medical intervention stops, Divine intervention begins.
