I hope that you do not think I am being petty but I have a problem with the idea of private schools. People go around stating that charter schools will fix everything. Do they understand the basics of the school system? DO you? I want all my students to have a free, appropriate education. Below are a few facts to help you out:
I am sorry but I am baffled that there are people in the government that want this. They want the schools to pay for themselves, I can get that. However, the private schools DO NOT have to accept every student or follow state guidelines. In the end, the students can be taught whatever and that would be a disaster. I pray that the people up top are thinking ahead and not just on the right now.
James 3:1 states: "Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly."
I knew that I was going to be a teacher early in life. I love kiddos and I get excited to see them learn new things. When I was doing my internship, I did have some roadblocks but God worked it out. I am glad that I made it through it and I just finished my 5th year teaching. I have loved every minute of it. I know that I teach students everyday and I must show his love without question. Even though I do not tell them about Jesus (not allowed... I need money... not going to court), I am patient with them.. I help them... I love them. While they are with me, I do the best I can to help them be the best that he or she can be. That is all I can do. I am a teacher that teaches special needs students. I daily work with hearing impaired and autistic students. I accept that some may never be able to talk to me, read or do math. But I can make sure that he or she is as independent as possible. I love that smile when a student realizes that he or she did something that others said they would never be able to do. Fellow teachers, why do you teach?
