Something To Inspire

Chuck Poole, author of "uNforgettable" and host of the "Teachonomy" podcast, always has wise, uplifting words for teachers!

Great love stories have enticed people for generations. They have provided laughter and excitement, as well as heartbreak and tears, and I believe Teaching is a love story.
It is filled with emotion, passion, and surprises. In many ways, teachers live a love story every time they step into their classrooms. Sometimes our days are filled with bliss, while other times they are littered with stress and struggle. The key thing to remember, however, is that just like in a true love story, the ‘happily ever after’ is just around the corner.

1. In a love story, ordinary people do extraordinary things. In teaching, teachers possess a passion that drives them to do the impossible.

2. In a love story, there are hurdles around every corner. In teaching, we face obstacles. Instead of giving up or giving in, however, we push through the barriers because we know that what lies on the other side is worth the fight.

3. In a love story, the full range of human emotions are explored, and patience is crucial. In teaching, we know that for every negative emotion that comes our way, there is a much stronger, positive one waiting to reveal itself if we are patient enough to experience it.

4. In a love story, the drive to overcome brings about success. When most people are ready to throw in the towel, Teachers are just beginning to roll up their sleeves. Their love for teaching and for making a difference in their student’s lives is what drives them to overcome anything that tries to hinder progress and growth.

What aspect of your teaching love story do you love the most?
