Challenging Students

 

Perhaps

it is our most

challenging students

who are giving us the most.

 

Perhaps they are giving us

honesty;

honest emotion,

an honest view at

their true selves.

 

Perhaps they are giving us

a peak at a reality

that’s different than our own.

 

Perhaps they are also

giving us opportunity.

An opportunity to grow.

An opportunity to become better.

An opportunity to change our thinking

and our teaching. An opportunity to

question the old

and an opportunity to

try something new.

 

Perhaps

in figuring out how to give

these students an opportunity

to learn, it is also us

who is being given

an opportunity to learn.

 

Perhaps this is idealistic thinking,

or perhaps it’s not.

Perhaps it’s our choice.
