I Can Change the World

Yes, it’s true, we are small but we are not insignificant.  I may not be able to change the world, but I can change my classroom.  I can change my philosophy, I can change myself. 

So when I look around my room and I see those faces, I know they deserve the very best of me.  I know they deserve a room where there is no punishment, where there are no inane rewards in place.  They deserve to live life outside of school free from pointless homework and they deserve to know their progress and their goals. 

So through my change I change their school experience.  I change their minds that learning is static, boring, or pointless.  I change their perspective that teachers are out to get them.  I change myself so that I can help them go on their path.  Though we may think we cannot change the world, we can through our students.  The change starts within ourselves.

  1. Hi! My name is Jessica and I am a student in Dr. Strange's EDM310 class. I love this post because we should change the way children think of teachers. Being with your students on a daily basis, it pretty much becomes their second home. Or that's how I see it. Teachers are with their students almost as much as their parents are. So we should be an example, and show them love and respect.
