How will you serve the world?
My thought of the day is devoted to always remembering how noble a profession teaching can be. It's not always rosy and tough as hell some days. There will be times when we feel that we are having no impact whatsoever. There will be days when our motivation is extremely low.
There will be days that our mental energy reserves are being rapidly depleted. However, for every bad moment, we must remember that in the eyes of some students, we are mountain movers. We are difference makers in their lives. This week I have had both my best and worst days in quite a while. Educators serve the world and make it a better place. Jim Carey's quote below made me feel better and reminded me that teaching is the noblest of professions. If you have a spare 26 minutes, please watch a commencement speech he gave a few months ago which is awesome. It's worth the watch.
