What Inspires You To Show Up to the Classroom Everyday?

I got a letter today from a student that I had when I looped from fourth to fifth grade in a single gender all boys classroom. I hadn’t heard from him since he left fifth grade. He was on our county website and decided to look up some teachers and found me. It was a short message just to say hi but it was his last words that inspired me the most, “You were a good teacher and stuff.” I know it’s not much, but it meant a lot to me. I responded that I was glad to hear from him and hoped he would keep in touch and I of course thanked him for his kind words. He will be a freshmen this year and I hope that I truly made a difference in the two years he was with me.
So my students are what inspire me the most. Even the challenging ones as they are often the ones that need us the most!
