Dear Students, I Want You to Remember…

Rising StarUncategorized

Dear Students,

I don’t want you to remember that I taught you your math facts or how to read a book.  I want you to remember that I believed in you even when you didn’t believe in yourself.  I don’t want you to remember that I taught you how to write a paper.  I want you to remember that when you said “I failed” that I said, “No, you learned!”  I don’t want you to to remember that I taught you how to give a speech in front of your friends and parents.  I want you to remember that I always said “Your actions are so loud, I can’t hear what you’re saying.”  I don’t want you to remember that I taught you responsibility when I asked you to take out the trash.  I want you to remember all the days that I took out the trash because I always said, “Never ask someone to do something that you are not willing to do yourself.”  I don’t want you to remember the times that our field trip got cancelled.  I want you to remember what we did instead because I promised that we would have fun.  I don’t want you to remember all of the work you had to do.  I want you to remember the day that I took you to the Line Creek to help you find leaves for your science assignment because I promised that I would help you.  I don’t want you to remember the time you got caught doing something wrong.  I want you to remember the times you made the right choice because you chose to remember the quote we say each day.  I want to leave a legacy and that legacy is you.

Love,

Ms. Debi
