I love this quote because it is so true and I think most teachers would agree with me. I am a mom and a mathematics teacher. Between both of these "jobs", I have between 83 - 103 kids. This number changes with each new school year. I may have only given birth to three of those kids but for 9 months I feel like I have closer to 100. I care about these kids. They matter. Every year I meet a new group and every year they make an impact on me. I get to know them. What they like/don't like....which is usually math, but I don't hold it against them. :) By the end of the year, they know what I like and don't like as well. I don't like Minecraft so I hope they don't hold that against me. LOL!
So if you hear me say "my kids", you may need to ask me to clarify....do I mean my three red-heads, or do I mean my students? Because often in my mind, they are all the same.
