Quincy at News, the Universe, and Everything is asking the question.
A teacher is someone who can...
--Give a hug without getting arrested.
--Bandage a knee without calling the school nurse.
--Change a lightbulb without calling the custodian.
--Make the children wash the bathrooms.
--Have a relationship with the principal without getting fired.
--Teach a child's mind while capturing their heart.
--Teach what they believe in and believe in what they teach.
--Meet the child's need and not worry about meeting the state guidelines.
--Commit to a lifetime of work without pay.
--Pray! in class, out loud, with the children and the ACLU can't say a word.
There is is only one that can fill that job description
A teacher is a mom
"Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and do not forsake your mother's teaching." Proverbs 1:8
