And the teachers shall lead them...



So, as luck would have it, my dinner provider tonight was the same young man who last night asked me whether the New Jersey English teachers were here yet. I asked him tonight if he were looking for a particular teacher, and he said yes, that his high school English teacher had always told him to ignore the chaos swirling around him and stay focused on his goals. He just wanted to let her know that he's in the 3rd best culinary arts school in the nation and pursuing his dream of becoming a chef. Ahhh...the ripples we create in the universe. I wonder whether this teacher will ever know the influence she had on another life.

This is the reason we teach! I can only hope to impact a child such as this inspiring teacher. Moments like this make the red tape, the gossip, the administration all go away...
