for the right reason in the right way and in the right state of mind.
No words can describe how PROUD I am of my friends! I’ve seen most of them struggle inside and outside of school and they managed to graduate and make their dreams into a reality.
I hope one day I can be called an effective teacher who got through to her students. After being exposed to the city schools, It made me more motivated to become an elementary school teacher. The students receives hardly any encouragement. I believe that every child deserves to be provided the right and appropriate education and the resources for them to succeed. The students I’ve witness believe that they can’t do anything, they are not smart.
That’s my biggest frustration: children that believe they can’t be smart enough.
Everyone has the potential to be whatever they want to be, especially elementary kids. They are the future and no matter what background they’re from, children needs education. They need to know that education is important, but it is also the lack of effective teachers. Teachers who don’t even believe in their children’s education should not be called educators.
sigh I’m ranting. I just want to help inner city kids and to drill them that they are as so bright and probably smarter than any rich ol’ white kid from Beverly Hills. They need optimism in their lives. Oh this is probably one of my favorite quotes from my favorite author, Dr. Seuss:
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it’s not.
and hate is a strong word!
