Never Give Up

Teachers make a difference in the lives of the students they teach. Coincidentally, those students also make a difference in the lives of the teachers they love. The following story was submitted by a Maricopa teacher about a student connection and and how it changed the lives of those involved.

 

Never Give Up

When I started at Legacy Traditional School, I had a young boy come to me with a disdain for school. His previous teacher told him that he could not comprehend or function as other students do. She belittled him so much, that he believed he was a failure and would never be smart like his peers.

I took it upon myself to change that little boys perception of himself. I worked with him throughout the day in class, and I invited him to my after-school tutoring. He has blossomed and enjoys coming to school each and every day. He told me that he loves school and that he is smart, as long as he tries his hardest.

These moments of love are what I live for as a teacher. This child will remember that he can do anything, as long as he tries his hardest, asks questions and never gives up.
