Before I settled on writing for a living, I was pretty sure I would become a teacher.I even did some substitute teaching to help pay the bills in college, but ultimately realized I wasn’t quite cut out for the job.
Being able to put up with rowdy kids, school board demands, nosy parents, and a million other responsibilities all while preparing lesson plans to shape theyoung minds sitting in front of you every day is no easy task. I’m in awe of my friends who wake up early, stay late, offer to coach teams or mentor clubs, and still have the energy to do it all over again in the morning.
It would be so easy for them to get lost in the commotion or become jaded when times get tough, but it just takes asmall act of kindness from one student to remind them exactly why they chose their job.
Take a look at the 11 incredible and beautiful moments below that each put a smile on a teacher’s face they definitely put a huge smile on mine as well!
