I don’t know if you have ever seen any of the space shuttles in person, but I have gotten to see three of them. I have to tell you, they are truly as awesome as they seem to be. Really. Truly magnificent!
One thing that makes them awesome is the sheer size. They are huge and hard to take in. Awesomeness number two is the fact is what these shuttles did. They went to space. Vast and wonderful space. They have carried people over and over to places that few people have ever been. Awesome fact three is how long they did this. They made trips to space for decades! And lastly (at least the last piece of awesome I will be sharing) is the time, effort, knowledge, and care that went into the shuttles to do what they did for so long.
They are a connection to something most people will never be directly connected to…and loving care went into allowing the ginormous shuttles to do this for a very long time!
I share this to say something that I have said before. Awesome is as awesome does (go ahead and hear it in the Forrest Gump voice). Teacher, you are awesome! You do awesome things! Don’t lose this in the grind of stress of every day life! You are awesome, so do awesome things. You do awesome things, and that makes you awesome. Be awesome!
You are amazing. You are believed in. And you are making a huge difference in the lives of your students. Keep being awesome and keep on teaching, Teacher!
