    " How do I know my students are learning? - It's the satisfaction I feel when I stare at their beautiful smiles when getting in and leaving the classroom ever single day."

    I wrote this quote when I understood why my students smile at me all the time. Thank you to all my students.

    Everyday is a new day,
    No matter what comes my way.
    When I am with free spirited people like you,
    Then I know today is true and new.
    You make time for me even if it's for a few.

    You're a wonderful teacher and friend too.
    I actually did not like school until I met you.
    This year is free from fear with you here.
    With you right by my side I have you speaking in my mind.
    You made me see that I should be O.K. being me.
    What I learned from you is that I hold the key to what I want to achieve!

    " Never be afraid in a classroom, never be afraid on the playing field, and most of all, never be afraid in the path of life. You have people that believe in you, that love you, that care about you; dry your tears, you are going to be okay, because I believe in you, and you believe in you."

    My history teacher, Mr. Chapman, told me this one time after class when he saw me crying. He knew I was going through a hard time and every time I start to cry, I think about this, I dry my tears, and I'm not afraid anymore. Maybe if you think about this, when you are crying, you too won't be afraid anymore. Thanks, Mr. C., you're the best!!

    " You must understand before you are understood."
    Author Unknown --- Submitted by J.R. --- Kansas
    Many youngsters and adolescents refuse to listen to any kind of advice. Sometimes, they want to "make" people understand who they are, and as a result, they refuse to listen. I think this may be the main contributor as to why they often see the turns, but not the roads ahead. In my opinion, reality awareness should be a key element in teaching these children.
