Teachers make a difference in the lives of every child they come in contact with, for better or worse. If you are a teacher, please know that you ARE writing on that child’s slate of who they are and who they will become. You are TEACHING them with everything you say and do. You are shaping their minds and hearts.
It’s daunting but you are up to the task.
Those kids trust you. They may trust you to care for them or they may trust that they can’t count on you but they do have trust you. Remember that trust is faith or belief in something. Be the person they can believe will always be on their side. Be the person they can trust with their hearts. You will be forever rewarded and so will they.
