Look back to know what lies ahead
My title may seem a little strange, but hey, I AM a little strange.I think when we take time to review our past it gives us a clear direction to a more successful future. Some of us may look back with no regret, while others, and I think most fall into the others category, would love a re-do. Looking back at the time I have spent in the classroom, only pushes me to be better in the future. Sure, I get bogged down in the endless paperwork and assignments that have NOTHING to do with teaching, but what I really want, is to be THAT teacher. The one that makes a difference in a kid's life. Students may pass through my doors and not give a rip about doing hair. I am ok with that. I learned a long time ago to not take it personal. What I want more than anything is for them to pass through my doors and be a better individual. Some may question my motives for teaching. Afterall, I am supposed to be graduating successful stylists. I, on the other hand, think my content is the 2nd most important thing they learn. If my actions speak louder than my words then I want my actions to scream "You CAN do it, you CAN be somebody". Speaking to the child that is "different" in the hallway, asking a "not-so-popular" student to be my helper, encouraging a student with a behaivor problem rather than scolding them. These are the lessons I want my students to get an "A" in. Looking back this semester, I hope that my actions, rather than my words, resonate the loudest.
