Teachers, We See You

Teachers, we see you. We see your lives. We see that you not only have a family of your own, but your family has struggles and worries just like ours. We see that ding on the door of your car, the weeds poking through the mulch in your flower bed, and the tears in your eyes as you send your own little ones into a kindergarten class for the first time. You’re one of us.

Art Project featuring the hands of Brandi Woods’ 5th Grade Class at Kirksville Elmentary under the guidance of Art Teacher, Kim Hamilton.

We see something else in you too, that we don’t necessarily see in ourselves. We see a selfless commitment to our kids. Somehow, through all your life’s hurdles, you save part of yourself to give to kids who don’t belong to you. You instruct them, and watch them closely to learn their personalities and what makes them click. You observe heartbreaking situations, and provide a unique love for them that they may or may not receive anywhere else. You look out for their best interest with the eager intention of making them see their own value. There’s a lot more to teaching than math, science, reading, and writing, etc…  You’re growing the next generation, and you’re doing an incredible job. We see you, and we appreciate you!

“The curriculum contains so much necessary, raw material, but warmth is the vital element that grows the soul of a child.” – Carl Jung
