A Teacher's Reflection In Time Of Tragedy
have not stopped thinking about the tragedy that struck our country
Friday all weekend and what I will do in my classroom now. I take my
teaching job very seriously. There is no oath or secret handshake that
teachers take to say they dedicate their classrooms to the children that
step into them. We do what we do because we love it. I hope I never
find myself in the situation that the teachers in Newtown, CT did, but if I
did I would do the same as they did and protect the children I serve.
So as I step into my classroom tomorrow I will do what I do best,
educate the children that walk through my door with love and compassion.
I will greet them with a smile and a hug. I will remember that even
though I cannot prevent tragedy from happening, I can put my trust in
God that he can give me peace and keep me strong.
