A note from
I AM A TEACHER
I was born the first moment that a question leaped from the mouth of a child. I have been many people in many places. The names of those who have practiced my profession ring like a hall of fame for humanity...I am also those who names and faces have long been forgotten but whose lessons and character will always be remembered in the accomplishments of their students...
I am the most fortunate of all who labor. A doctor is allowed to usher life into the world in one magic moment. I am allowed to see that life is reborn each day with new questions, ideas, and friendships. An architect knows that if he builds with care, his structure may stand for centuries. A teacher knows that if he builds with love and truth, what he builds will last forever.
I am a warrior, daily doing battle against peer pressure, negativity, fear, conformity, prejudice, ignorance, and apathy. But I have great allies: Intelligence, Curiosity, Parental Support, Individuality, Creativity, Faith, Love, and Laughter all rush to my banner with indomitable support.
