Well... a couple of months ago, a 5th grade teacher shared a paper one of her students, (my former student), had written this year. At the first of the year my school emphasized "Future Stories." These Future Stories were about thinking about what the future held and what each student could see themselves doing when they were grown. This child wants to be a teacher when she grows up. Once again, my heart melted when I read the words on this student's paper and was reminded of why I teach. It was just a brief little paragraph but, that's all we need sometimes to light a fire under us and motivate us to do whatever we can to help our kids.
