The best thing someone told me.

Last week a student of mine told me how much I'd inspired her. that I gave her a reason to smile everyday... Basically, she said I was one of the best teachers she's ever had and changed her life. She was even tearing up while she said all this.
I acted like it was no big deal, and said a simple "thank you". But when i got home, I cried. I'm a nearly forty year old man and hardly ever cry, but I did. That girl says I changed her life. no, she changed mine. She's one of the few students that makes my job worth going to. I hope she knows that.

  • You should always value the way in which you can inspire people like that. The one person who changed my life was also my teacher. It's an amazing connection.

  • Let's hope I don't see another sexual abuse story on the news...
