There is a beautiful little wooden placard in my office that was once given to me by one of the parents that read:”Children have wings, teachers help them to fly.” For the longest time it was just a gift but never did the meaning of these few words meant more than what happened today.
A student who has been at Circle Academy for the last 19years turned 21years old. We celebrated his big day at school today amongst a few staff members. The moment was so special that it felt as though I had just learned to fly even though I always had wings.
Yes it can happen to teachers as well.
