#11: A Lifesaver
Teachers don’t get enough credit for the changes they make in the lives of the children they teach. So many kids and teens are struggling, and if their home life isn’t the best, it can go unnoticed. This teacher stepped up and gave her a viable way to work through her emotions.
You can tell the teacher made an impact because, in the busy life that exists today, this student still takes the time to reach out once a year on the teacher’s birthday. That’s a big deal, and I’m hoping it lasts the rest of their life. I bet the spoken poetry is fantastic, too.
