I love my kids. I mean, I would take a bullet for my kids. Each and every single one of them. Teaching is the greatest thing in the world. I am learning more about them. They come to my room before school, and during lunch. They make me smile. I want the world for them.
That said. Teaching is the hardest thing in the world. They don’t know to want the world for themselves. All my love won’t get them into college. Its gotta be tough love. Right now I don’t have the tough part down. I’m trying to give myself props for what I’m doing right. But I’ve got a long way to go. And it gets me down.
