I Remember

I Remember…

For the first time in my teaching career, I actually have a name plate. It shouldn’t be that big of a deal, but I was very excited. 

All students have had hundreds of teachers in their lifetimes and very few of these teachers they remember. But there are some teachers who inspire students to work three times harder than they normally would, while others inspire students
 to skip class. Some teachers teach you lessons, while some teachers teach you lessons not found in textbooks. These are the ones that linger in a student’s memory. 

If you want to read a feel good book, read -
I Remember My Teacher: 365 Reminiscences of the Teachers Who Changed Our Lives by David Shribman

Here is my I remember statement. 
If you have one, please share. 

I remember……..
My grade four teacher Mr. Kastelan who took us to watch the Olympic Torch Relay in 1988. That is the day my dream started – ‘Someday I will run with the torch.’ On January 13, 2010, my dream came true. On February 11, 2010, I got to personally thank him, until that day; he never knew the impact he had on my life. He inspired me to pursue my dreams. 

Be the one they remember! 
Inspire them so they remember your name!
