Every teacher lives for each moment when a light comes on in the eyes of a student. There is deep deep joy in a teacher's heart each time a student says, "I get this!" All of the hours and hours and years of creating lessons and designing differentiations to bring learning to each student are more than worth it when the eureka of discovery swirls in a classroom alive with engagement. Teachers understand this to the core of their existence. And "this" is absolutely immeasurable. 30 years of teaching and "this" is still my passion.
This poem celebrates the heart of each teacher.
