Call me partial, but I really do believe there’s a special place for teachers in heaven. There’s tons of reasons teachers need encouragement: the constant flow of ungraded papers, pressure to achieve proficiency targets, implementing the ‘latest, scientifically-proven reading strategy.’
Fellow teachers—I feel you! You’re exasperated! Yet what I find most amazing about educators is the wonder, hope and love of learning that doesn’t seem fade, regardless of how long we’ve been teaching.
I truly believe that in every soul of a teacher is an element of Christ’s very own nature—hope, faith, guidance, and love. Am I the only one who absolutely loves his or her job? I can’t even!
Teachers sense when a student’s mood has turned for the worst.
Teachers are caregivers.
