"The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit."
Isn't that what teachers do? Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute, we work with kids helping them learn to read , write, solve problems, or whatever content we teach. We work to teach them to think critically, to collaborate, to research, to dream. We work with kids because we hope to make a difference in their lives. We try to lead by example, teaching our students to get along well with others, to write their name, to take pride in their work, to never give up. We teach because we love kids.
