Experiencing the love of my pupils

2015-12-16 06:00

AS a teacher I have never experienced the love that I receive from the children I teach. I am so blessed.

When I reach school, my children (without being asked) wait for me to come to carry my bag, when I go home, they will wait to carry my bag to my car.

When I go on break they are there, each wants to carry my cup and lunch bag and they argue over who gets to help me so I will choose who asked me first. They walk with me to the staff room. My children are so helpful whatever I need to do in the classroom, whether it’s putting up posters or tidying up books, etc., they love to to be a part of it.

When they see me, they have smiles on their faces or a warm hug. They write me heartfelt letters of love and appreciation that cover my cupboard. I have really been blessed to be with amazing children whose hearts, lives and love have touched mine. They are willing to offer a prayer for my family or I if we are not well, they are giving and caring. When I got hurt, they cried for me which shows how much they love me and what I do or teach them makes a difference in their lives.

They make beautiful art and they try hard to do their work well. As a teacher, you may not always see results straight away, but persevere and with time, you will reap the rewards. When you speak and motivate them to walk in the right path or live a life of promise, inspiring them to go for their dreams, they have a bright future and can fulfill their destiny, you are planting seeds of wisdom in a garden of hope, digging the soil of fertile minds, watering it with your knowledge and the harvest will be golden as their futures, bright as the sun, shining in the glory of their hearts.

You are unforgettable, though years may pass what you have imprinted will cause these stars to illuminate tomorrow skies and their light to burn with unending promise. You are breathing life with words, creating desire for greatness and sending them to conquer worlds of opportunity.
