I am a teacher. My goal for each and every year can easily be written yet hard to execute.
Here is my teacher goal is to be the kind of teacher I pray my own children have.
Teachers: Who We Are
First, we are professionals. That means we are more than educators. We are masters of our craft and experts of our fields. Next, we should be supported by parents, administrators, and even law makers. Also, we should be uplifted by each other. Even when we are not supported by others, we should always be encouraging each other.
Teachers: What We Do
It is easy to say we teach. But we do so much more than that. We prep, copy, laminate, cut, glue, paint, assemble, tie, and every other verb allotted in the dictionary of multitasking skills.
Reality is that is what the job description is. But we do so much more than these tasks. We love, inspire, listen, model, wait, train, laugh, cry, laugh until we cry. But mostly we hope and pray. Lastly, we do the impossible every single day. We love. Oh how we love.
Teachers: Why We Become Educators
Our dream in college isn’t to make good test takers or to help product students higher on standardized tests. It might have been to make a difference in lives of students. It may have been to teach little ones to read or big ones to find joy in math. We became teachers because we believe in the wonderful goodness of children. The strive to help child meet their potential.
Teachers: How We Can Help Each Other
One of our many roles is to support and uplift other teachers. Collaboration is vital to keep the education momentum of doing what is best for students going! We are our greatest strengths.
