I love my students. I love my career. While I don’t always love what it entails, I am extremely grateful that I have a job, and that I have a job I love. I know that many people are not in the same boat.
My students are awesome. I don’t know that there are enough words to describe them, but the joy that I feel in my heart when they greet me in the morning, come chat with me at lunch, hug me after being accepted to the college of their choice, text me to ask me how my weekend was, call me to schedule lunch/dinner while they’re home from college…it’s amazing.
This is not to say that they don’t frustrate me. They do. Frequently. However, my goal is always to love them to death; my prayer is always for God to make up the difference where I lack.
I’m blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of their journey.
Until next time…
