You Are Awesome!

Someone recently told me I was an awesome teacher.  I said that to say most days I don't feel so awesome! I haven't won any awards, or published any books; which is something I have wanted to do since I was in the fifth grade.  In fact most days I feel overwhelmed.  I feel like there was something else I should have done or could have done to reach my students. It seems there is always a lesson that I didn't get to, something that will have to wait until the next day.  It goes without saying that most teachers probably feel overwhelmed at one time or another.  Don't they?

I also think there are a lot of wonderful teachers who don't hear how awesome they truly are.  So the next time you get a chance, take a moment to tell another teacher how awesome you think they are. They will appreciate it, even if they don't happen to be feeling it at the moment!
