Heart Behind the “Author’s Chair”

May all the children that grace this stool know they are loved by me and by one mightier than I could ever dream of being.
With each passing day, may they increase in wisdom, discernment, and understanding.
I hope they are bold and courageous in the pursuits that set their souls on fire.
May they learn that respect goes a long way and a little humility doesn’t hurt.
To my future students: Never give up on yourself, your goals, or your dreams.. you were made by God, for God.
May you find peace and joy in my classroom.
I hope you feel loved, accepted, and valued by me. I can’t wait to meet you. I’m excited to memorize your face and name. I look forward to reading books with you and editing your papers. I want to accommodate your learning style and personality.
I can’t wait to cheer you on outside of my classroom. My favorite part of being your teacher will be getting involved in your life.
I will be tough, but I will see that you grow not only as a student but as a person.
I will require the use of manners as soon as you walk through my door.
I will teach you how to use a planner, hold a door, and we will say “thank you.”
I will probably raise my voice sometimes. I may even get frustrated with you as I’m sure you will get frustrated with me.
I hope you understand that I will always have your best interest at heart. With every essay, reading assignment, and vocabulary quiz, my desire is to prepare you to be successful beyond the walls of my classroom.
I have all ideas, you will impact my life more than I could ever dream of impacting yours.
You are so loved and prayed for already.
