Another Monday is here…and over the weekend, I reflected on the kind of teacher I’d love to be this week.
I rediscovered the importance of having emotional support this past weekend. When you have someone to talk to who won’t judge you, but will simply be there to understand and listen to what you have to say, it makes whatever you are going through so much easier. It does wonders for your mental health. To be able to talk through anything, no matter how insignificant it may seem to you, can instantly relieve some of the burden that you might be feeling. I was glad I was able to be that someone to a student of mine.
So this week, I hope to be the kind of teacher that my students can come to for anything. I hope they know that no matter what is going on in their life, they will always have someone to come to. I hope they know they are never alone, and that I will help them get through the struggles that are thrown at them.
I hope to be that ‘Someone’.
