Insights behind the perils of being a teacher

The reason I still teach...

A former student came up to me at the end of the year awards ceremony.  She told me who she was and that I was the reason she was who she was. A success.  Her brother had died the year I had her and she had a really hard year.  She said I helped her get through that year with structure and laughter and lots of help.  She never forgot me.  I started crying.  That is the reason I teach.  To make a difference.
