This piano bench is empty and I’m glad. I know it sounds odd for a piano teacher to say a foolish thing like that. It is true, I am ready for vacation, I am really ready I could shout with joy. Don’t get me wrong I love my students and when school starts I will be excited to get started again.
I want to give tribute to every teacher who does a good job of teaching. I have one special teacher in mind. Her name is, well I won’t say but I think she has teaching in her blood. She. . .
Has a light in her eyes when her students come into the room
She greets them by name
She many times gives them a hug
She stimulates their mind
She makes them feel special
She disciplines them fairly
She is creative
She cares enough to make a little note book for summer assignments
She teaches them about Jesus not just in Bible class
Her room is messy in a good way–she has tons of “stuff”
She made one little boy I know feel very successful
Thank you teachers for being so special and making a difference in the lives of your students. You will never know the difference you make in a child’s life, sometimes you are the only person to help a child realize his/her potential.
