It reminds me why I teach. I teach not for any high brow ideas of imparting incredible knowledge, although I want my students to be well educated. I teach not to receive great accolades, for the greatest of teachers often receive no thank yous in front of immense crowds. It is stories like this one that color our lives. We all have them. That pivotal child who shows us the power of a good teacher.
I teach because I love them. I teach because they need me.
And I teach…
because I need them too.
