The Highest Honor in Education

All teachers become educators to make a difference in the lives of their students. Tomorrow I will watch a student who became a friend, a friend who became a brother get married to the girl of his dreams. And, he chose me to be in his wedding. There are many awards that I could win for teaching. But, nothing will compare to the honor that I will have to share this experience with Cody and Kate. He often writes about how I was a mentor to him. What he does not understand is how much of an influence he has been on me and my career.

When I look back on my career I will remember the conversations that we had in the weight room about life, about love, and about sacrifice. I will remember the pimple face twerp who listened to my every word as if I knew what the hell I was talking about. And I will remember the day that he came to my home and told me that he had fallen in love and how this is definitely the one.

I hope I have made some type of influence on all of my students throughout my career. I may not have been your best, or favorite, teacher, but I hope that on some level we connected and that you learned something from me whether that was from the content or just from life.

This is my daughter.
This is David.
My daughter is learning how to read.
She is reading David a story.
Read, Daughter, read.
My daughter says “da… da… dog.”
David is in pain.
David is thinking about comps.
Pay attention, David, pay attention.
Heather is My Daughter’s mother.
David cannot find Heather.
David hears a car start and the tires squeal.
Come back, Heather, come back.

God Bless the Teacher

– Dad.

– Yes.

– We are going to get the talk in school today.

(shit)

– Uh, okay.

– I think they are going to show a video from Youtube.

(shit)

– They are not going to show you a video from Youtube.

– Yes they are! Who does that?! Youtube! Really!

– They are not going to show you a video from Youtube. I am sure they have a lot of educational videos. (flashback to 5th grade, Mrs. Lower’s class, Mt. View Elementary).

– Well, that is what the 6th graders told us.

(Stupid 6th graders)

– Silence.

– Well the boys have to say penis 5 times without laughing.

(you’re shittin’ me, right)

– No, honey, they do not. (I mean seriously! I can’t do that at 37)!

– Yes they do!

– Let me guess, the 6th graders told you.

– Yup!

– Welp, look at that! The Baby is crying.

And I ran, I ran so far away.
