We see kids every day coming to school as if they have been on a battlefield, not entering one at school. So many do. Families are stressed, kids are stressed, our society is stressed…and hopeless. Oh, we believers know better, don’t we? Time for some big prayers.
I am a good teacher. No, I am an excellent teacher. God has equipped me and called me to teach these children. They may be a well disciplined class or not, but God has me right where He wants me and I have a job to do. I can change a child’s life forever by educating and loving him/her. I can potentially change many lives by changing this one. I will not shy away from disciplining or loving where needed. I will not always be the most popular person in my room. Jesus wasn’t either, so that’s ok.
