Dealing With the Downs 41:365xs

20140531-011555-4555752.jpgToday I had a newer teacher ask me if I ever have one of “those days” when you shake your head and think “What just happened today?”

The simple answer is yes! We all have them every once in a while. I tried to explain to him a simple but important part of teaching, there is another day!

Our job is not easy and some days/weeks/ years it is extraordinarily hard. But, when it seems the hardest, when we feel like we are most frustrated, is when we must step back and remember that YOU ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE! It may not have gone to plan, and it may not be the impact you hope for, but when you have “that class” or even “that day” your job is that much more important!

So, take a step back, clear your head, and continue the fight. You are making a difference and for those kids, you might be the only one left fighting!

In the words of Monty Python, ALWAYS LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF LIFE!
