pleasantly exhausted

words can't even begin to describe how fucking awesome the kids are this year. we gave them a five minute water break, and every single one of them came back on to the field on their own in five minutes, maybe even less.

small, but proud. hungry, eager to learn. and such a family. everyone is already looking out for each other.

*smiling sigh* i've done such good here. i'm so happy.

Your success makes me feel so hopeful and glad that inspirational teaching still goes on. I have spent too much time in the OMB. Teching for Evergreen this week has been great fun, but it's the same negative environment. Teaching is supposed to inspire and motivate long into the future. Some people get so hung up on the product and the idea that the only way perfection comes about is by beating mistakes into the students until they're so afraid to make them that they perform well. They perform well this way, but not inspired. They have it in them: they look out for each other in a limited way, and they want to learn. But the ones that struggle slightly and end up in the path of the wrath end up getting destroyed.

Thanks for reminding me that teaching can be and is inspirational.
