I am standing with the third grade class I student taught in this year. I threw a graduation party just for them. I learned from them and vice versa.
They will always hold a special place in my heart for they taught me how to preserver though trying times. Their personal stories kept me going and made me appreciate the little that I do have.
I kept explaining the process of schooling I went through and how it is possible for them to go through the same process.
When I was transferred to another classroom, one of the students started weeping and told me a few words I would never forget: You don’t care. You leave me like everyone else.
Teaching made me take his words and make sure he realized that I do care. I explain to him the benefits of me teaching him. We we both learned and taught each other and now its time for both of us to moving on.
