Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health. Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracle process all begins. Jim Rohn
You may not know this, thought about it, or could care about it (lol), but I was not the best student in the classroom and I really just wanted to be there for the socializing aspect. I was not a terrible student, but just did not enjoy the journey of learning as I do today. Maybe my teachers then thought "ahhhh, she will probably just get by, barely getting by the skin of her teeth". Some classes seemed easy to me, some teaching styles just resonated with me more than others, some grades were great reflections of my feelings ;) I just wonder if a teacher takes it personal when one student misbehaves in their class and a parent says I don't know why in your class you are having these problems, or other things that can make the human side come out.
As school is pretty much in full swing around here I think it's important for me to tell you teachers, past and present, please, please do not it take personal when students don't seem to be enjoying your class. Please do not take it personal when they are cutting up and being the class clown. Please do not take it personal and feel that you are failing your students or student when they can't get the lesson and are failing in the class.
I think that everyone of my teachers made an impact with regards to my ability to learn, the enjoyment that I have in the process of learning now, and the passion that I get to teach others in an unconventional way. I think that in the moment, while we are in the fire, and when results do not come out the way that we believe they should have (stupid geometry) it is hard to see just how much we will be positively impacted from the class. What I'm trying to say is that the older we get, the more fun learning seems to be because we started in your classroom in the searching phase....that is where the miracles began. Thank you for dedicating and serving children who grow up to be adults that love learning. Truthfully I am constantly reading, researching, and loving all of the knowledge that I gain. I would not be able to do this if it was not for each teacher that I had along my journey of education (formal and informal). Thank You Teacher!
Have a Blessed School Year.
