Every single day I walk into my classroom and teach kids. Probably as long as I can remember I have known that I would be working in a setting with kids. They make me laugh, they frustrate me, but most of all they inspire me. They are so resilient. They have so much fun with everything. They forgive so easily. They dream impossible dreams! They live life to its fullest. Kids inspire me to be the best person that I can be. They forgive me when I fail, (trust me I fail). They don't give up on people when they make mistakes. Kids move to the beat of their own drum. Kids are the greatest form of honesty. Kids never give up!
When I think about all the kids I have met along the way, I am overwhelmed by how they have impacted my life. I don't think that I would be able to be the awesome person I am without them. They have taught me most importantly how to love. Kids love with no expectations. They give and keep giving despite how often grownups hurt them. They are the best example of sacrifice! I am so thankful for the inspiration that I get everyday from the kids that are in my life! What a blessing!
What kids are in your life? How do they inspire you to be a better person?

“I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong, allow them to experience life on their own terms, allow them to take the subway... let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.”
