So Much To Learn Yet

18 Jan

You know my name, but not my story.

You’ve heard what I’ve done, but not what I’ve been through.

Have you taken the time to think this through. Each day I encounter a child in the hallway I say “Hello” or “Good Morning”. Many of these students don’t even know my name. I am not a classroom teacher, I am a “specialist”. I work with the teachers to help the children succeed. I believe it all begins the moment they see you each day. You decide what kind of day you will have. You can teach the children the same thing. We all have a name, but more importantly we all have a story. How many teachers take the time to know that story. Some children come with a “history”….but remember it’s just that his/her story…

The responsibility lies in the hands of each adult to remember that each new day is a new beginning. A time to leave behind the mistakes of yesterday and learn the lessons of today. Today can not begin with a judgement because it sets everyone up for failure…those who judge and those that are being judged.

Take the time to learn “his story”….it will give you a whole new perspective.
