One of days…when I need a reminder…
Student: Why do you do it (teach)?
I paused… because at some point, I used to think I could make a difference.
Student: For some of us, you still are.
This coming from a student who is making tiny steps progress. Still not where we want to be, but progress.
This, coming from a student I was ready to give up on. Each day, I returned to class, some days out of energy and patience, but to see them moving forward this week…it’s why I keep coming back.
