I Learn Through You


I am amazed by how much I learn through you. The reality is that I don't know much on my own. In fact, if it wasn't for you, where would I be? What would I know?

Our profession is not for the faint of heart. I am mesmerized by those that I get to observe in their instruction and watch them passionately reach the minds and souls of their students. You are engaged in your role each moment of every day. You do not take a break. You do not waiver in your conviction to serve. You listen to every child in every moment. You give, relentlessly, tirelessly.

I am in awe. You are my teacher. I am your student.

Without you I would not be filled with the knowledge and the passion that consumes me. I learn through you. What you bring to the table is undeniably the most powerful lessons that life can provide. My plate feels full yet there is room for more. I crave, more. Just when I thought I was on the brink of running over, more can fit within the cup. I seek more.

I learn through you.

Your writing is filled with inspiration and determination. You share the journey in which you are on. Your willingness to be transparent has made me better. The experiences you have embarked upon has inspired so many. For that reason alone I, we, are never on our own. You are always there. I, we, are grateful.

I am better at what I do because I learn from you.
