Isaiah 6:8

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Teachable Tuesday Thought 2

" I am a teacher! What I do and say are being absorbed by young minds who will echo these images across the ages. My lessons will be immortal, affecting people yet unborn, people I will never see or know. The future of the world is in my classroom today, a future with the potential for good or bad. The pliable minds of tomorrow's leaders will be molded either artistically or grotesquely by what I do." Here's hoping I do a good job.

You know, "I wake up every morning determined both to change the world and have one hell of a good time. Sometimes this makes planning the day a little difficult." E. B. White

I want to die...thinking that I had the greatest ride of all...and it was all worth it. Every single day I walked into a classroom...was worth the pain, the tears, the fears, and the anger....but most of all....the compassion. We are all teachers of some sort....do your best!

Love that last paragraph. Words for us to all think about and hopefully live by.

I think ol' E.B. had the right idea. And I totally agree with you that we are ALL teachers; a great responsibility!
