This made me have some hopes about the future and the impact I can make.
I hope as I teach, that I do not become jaded and take education for granted. By showing how important I think education is, the students will follow my lead.
I hope I can look for the good things in everyone each day. Looking for the good things may push away some of the negative things that shouldn’t be the focus.
I hope that I can help my students find the joy of education. Sharing the joy will help spread it.
I hope I can bring some joy into my classroom every day. Bringing it into the classroom will set a good example for others.
I hope I can do the little things that matter for a student. It is these little things they will remember. Maybe someone needs some nurturing instead of scolding. Maybe someone needs to talk about their weekend instead of just listening to a lecture.
How do you bring joy into your classroom?
