What Teachers Make

To all the teachers out there this one is for you!

It can be rough this time of year with all the testing, testing, and more testing. It is a very stressful time. I do not think one test should determine a child's success nor should test scores reflect themselves in a teachers salary. Teachers may get summers and all the major holidays off but we work our butts off everyday we're in the classroom and make more then you could ever imagine. As a teacher people often ask me the question "What do you make?" Well here's the short answer, because honestly I could go on forever...

I make earning a sticker feel like winning a million dollars,
a Crayola drawing like the most beautiful piece of art.

I make students work harder than they thought possible,
accomplish things they thought were impossible.

I make adding two digit numbers feel like
the biggest achievement in the world.

I make students apologize and
not criticize.

I make learning sight words a game,
books and imaginations come to life.

I make students challenge themselves,
never quit or say “I can’t”

I make science breathe,
and numbers dance.

I make students respect me, their peers, and themselves,
I make them earn privileges and face consequences.

So what do YOU make?

Easter Poetry

Happy Friday everyone! Happy Good Friday that is. Today over two thousand years ago Jesus hung on a cross taking the weight of the world’s sin upon Himself.

(Title: Broken Barriers)
He was…

Three days later he…
Conquered death for the betrayers
Brought salvation to the bruised
Opened heaven to the beaten
Offered grace to the belittlers

I don’t know about you but I love good news! And nothing gets better than the news of Easter.

(Title: Heaven Rejoices)
Dawn breaking
Earth quaking
Devil shaking

Death defeated
Satan retreated
Mission completed

Empty grave explains
My Savior reigns
Victorious refrains

Hope you enjoyed the poetry and have a blessed Easter weekend! Registered & Protected
