Some whose name I can't remember,
And some whose name I never knew...


I have also decided that everything I do effects my students. It is not so much what I'm teaching, but how I'm teaching it. They are learning so much more than I could imagine, and my actions are so important to that learning. It wasn't so much that I didn't think this already, but it's like it hit me today on a deeper level. In thinking about one student whose mother had left, I realized the influence one person can have on another. She would come and talk to me and eventually I had to make some decisions I don't ever want to make again. However, I realized that perhaps the reason she came to me with all these issues was because of how I presented myself, the person she percieved me to be. I can only hope she took good habits from my personality...but it is hopeful, and scary, to know she will find someone to look up to, someone she wants to be proud of her even if her mom isn't there. You never know who you are talking to...or how lasting the effects will be.

Today I felt the earth. I felt the energy awakening beneath my feet and I felt something inside me stir in response. Something is changing, something more than what has been happening. Things are going to be different. Life is returning to this world.

It's like I'm looking upon the world with new eyes...seeing beyond into something else, into something more. Gotta love energy shifts in all their disorienting brilliance. :P

I agree... words can have profound effects. They can go by unheard by some or make long lasting changes. I bet all your students look up to you so very fondly... and learn so many positive things from you :)
