Inspired by students

I'm sitting here thinking about the 
students who sit in room C10 
every day with me. 
I think about 
the stories they bring with them...
Divorce
Loss
Bullying

I teach in an affluent school, 
but money doesn't protect you from
loneliness
abandonment
indifference

In many ways my students are 
lucky
blessed &
protected

But they still have stories
          we all do

Watching their smiles &
excitement...
Hearing their murmurings about
vacation...
Listening to their kind words &
their compliments

I am constantly inspired
inspired by these
sixth graders

  1. They are so blessed to have a teacher who cares about their stories...about their lives.
