I love when I get to share my pride in students I teach. I love letting the students know that I noticed their great actions and their insight and their just plain awesomeness. I love even more when I get to do it in front of others including their family and friends.
Yesterday was one of those days.
We had an awards banquet for our students and each teacher got to pick four students to honor. We could chose it based on attendance, grades, improvement, or any other criteria we deemed valuable.
It took me quite some time to narrow down my selections - a good dilemma to have. I hope the students appreciated it and I hope that it motivates them even more to strive to do well in and out of the classroom.
Several students in the program started out failing, started out hating school, started out not wanting to continue school. I, and my awesome colleagues, have been able to help these kids achieve success and to learn to love learning.
Everyone is good at something. Everyone touches people in some way.
What is your superpower?
