# I didnt know that years of school and a college degree would be of little consolition when facing a room full of bright little eyes on the first day of school. I thought I was ready...
# I didnt know that 5 minutes can seem 5 hours when there is idle time and 8 hours school day far too short for a well planned day of teaching.
# I didnt know that teaching children was only a fraction of my job. No one tells you about the conferences and phone calls, faculty meetings and committees, paper work and paperworks...
# I didnt know that there would be children that i would loved and cared for and stayed up late worrying about, who, one day would simply not show up. and that I would never see them again.
# I didnt know that I can always dry little tears and mend broken heart. I thought i could always make differences.
# I didnt know that the sound of children's laughters could drown out the sound of all the world's sadness..
# I didnt know that children could feel so profoundly. A broken heart knows no age. I didnt know that a single "Yes, ma'am" from a disrespectful child or a note in my desk that says "You're the best" could make me feel I'm on top of a mountain and forget the valleys I forged to get there...
# i never know that I could feel so m uch wiser, more tired.Sadder and happier, all at once. And that i would no longer call teaching my job, but my privilege.
