It is not even almost halfway through the year, but I am already tired. How about you? It gets busy fast doesn’t it? So much to do…
I think it is time for a little rally. There is a lot of year left and our students need us to be on our game. It is time for a theme song post, and I think I know the song we need right now. Click play and then read on.
Sometimes it feels so lonely as a teacher.
We are only one person, but we are trying to change the lives of our students each day. We are helping to shape and mold their futures.
We believe in them. We care about them. We know what we do matters. It is our nature, heart, and calling to do our best to make a difference.
We have ideas. We have plans. We have a drive. We are committed.
But we can feel so overwhelmed sometimes.
There is so much to do in order to do what we need to do.
Some of the the stuff to do is extra and not from us, but some of us is from ourselves because we want to do the best we possible can do for our students.
We want them to see how great that they can be. We want the experience in our classrooms to inspire them to move on and move deeper. We want them to become learners that never stop.
We can’t stop.
We have more to give.
We have more to be.
We have lives to change.
Teacher, you have fight in you. You have a warrior inside of you. You are a monster, in a good way. You have battles to wage for your students. They need you to keep fighting and keep going.
Find those reserves.
Remember why you are doing this…
You may only have one match, but you can make an explosion in the life of a students!
You have a lot left inside of you.
You’ve got this.
Never stop. Never give up. Never lose hope for the difference that you are making.
Keep dreaming. Keep moving. Keep going.
Don’t lose the part of you that realizes how important what you do is! I know that you have a lot to do. I know that you don’t love all of the aspects of your job…but your students need you! It is worth fighting through. It is worth doing all that you can to keep going. The little things you do matter more than anything. Remember why you a teacher…the students.
You are not crazy to keep doing this. Just focus on those lives behind the eyes that are looking at you. You have a purpose. You are needed. You are vitally important to the people in your classroom and the world.
Keep fighting! We all need you to! Keep breathing and keep going!
You’ve got this. I believe in you! You are amazing. You are making a difference. You really are. Keep fighting and keep on teaching, Teacher!
