A new school year starts..... so many possibilities lay before us, so many things we can accomplish as teachers, parents and students of life.I get excited when I consider what I could achieve this year with the kids at school, with my little girl at home...I am practically hopping up and down from sheer enthusiasm!
So, what I would hope for all us teachers and parents to do different(or better) this year, is to allow our students, our children to open themselves up to us, share their dreams, let them be vulnerable without fear of being judged, but with love and trust.Of course we will teach them what we should, but in such a a way that will allow them the freedom of expression, creativity, a touch of the craziness and impulsivity of youth..... the gift the student gives to the teacher is his trust, his love, his heart and soul....and it is a precious gift, ours for life if we honor it.
To wrap up,(see, I can get myself to shut up...!) my deepest yearning, my most passionate dream this year is to allow my students the luxury to see inside themselves, discover who they are and what they want out of life, their dreams and ambitions, their purpose-along with some rocking English knowledge of course!We teachers are vessels not only of knowledge and the passion to convey it but also vessels of love.....so the let the love out, in the classroom, the school, the whole world!Let dreams be realised and love be felt! Let a ROCKING new school year begin!
