It hits me every summer when I’m out of school the sheer number of decisions you make as a teacher in an hour, let alone an entire day!

Just so you know, dear teacher friend, you’re not alone and that the mental focus you give to your students is noticed.

There are many other things that separate us as teachers from any other profession, but I think the thing that floors me most is the sheer amount of mental time and mental energy we give.

So, here it is…

  1. I received this from a parent today–I’m a first grade teacher–and it truly did mean a lot. I am here to find out who wrote it. And to say thank you.

    Thank you.

    1. Oh my goodness Karla – you just made my day. – thank you so much for searching me out to bring it full circle. I meant every word in that poem because it’s what a teacher like you does every day. Hold onto those words that came from both my heart – and the heart of the parent who handed it to you – tomorrow and on those tricky days when we need to be reminded of the big picture.

  2. This is great. Thank YOU. Since the staff didn’t hear anything like this, I sent it out to everyone – because I needed to hear it.

  3. Hi, I love this! The jpg seems to only be viewable in the internet window–any way to change the format so it can be opened/downloaded and saved? Thanks

    1. Hi MaryAlison,
      Since it’s a photo – you’ll want to right click on the jpg in the internet window. Then select “save image” or “save image as” and that should give you the option to save it to your computer! Hope that can help.
