Yes I am. And here is why.
Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.
I make kids wonder.
I make them question.
I make them criticize.
I make them apologize and mean it.
I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.
I teach them to write and then I make them write.
I make them read, read, read.
I make them show all their work in math.
I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.
I make my students stand to pay allegiance to their Flag, to their country.
Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life.
I MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
