I was told that I was "making a difference" in the students' lives... I replied back wondering if that were really true... She said, "Yes. The kids love you and you show up every day..." To that, I said, "Well, they might love me and I show up every day but how they're doing on my tests doesn't look like I'm making any difference....... they're not doing their homework.... it's like I'm talking to zombies sometimes...." So she said, "Don't be so hard on yourself.... Everyone loves you.... The fact that you show up every day means a whole lot to them..... The kids see you showing up every day.... You're definitely making a difference in their lives....." So, question for everyone here..... Do you think you're making a difference just by showing up every day?
