I've never been more excited to share a Time-Out Tuesday than today. Last week when I was blog-hopping, I found gold. Well, a blogger whose heart is gold, Heather at Heather's Heart. I loved a poem that Heather wrote so much that I printed it and placed it inside my binder that I keep my lesson plans in as a daily reminder of the difference I make as a teacher.
As a home educator, I get much less encouragement than I did when I taught in the classroom. My children rarely say, "Mom, you are the best teacher." I do not get special cards or gifts around the holidays or during teacher appreciation week. I don't have any co-workers, a principal or a school administrator to say "good job." So this poem is extra special to me. It reminds me of why I teach and the difference I make wherever I teach- in a classroom and at home.
