As teachers we must stand tall. It is hard to see so many teachers and students walking with their heads down and the shoulders slouched. It is difficult to see the world around you when we are looking at the ground. More importantly when you are shining bright, but are looking down your light is not shining on as many people as it could. There is a light within every single one of us and we must shine our light onto those who haven’t found theirs yet. Students feel like they live in the dark and all it takes is a little bit of light for them to be able to see the world. With enough light in time they will explore world within them. Teachers stand tall and shine bright. Even though you may feel like you live in total darkness a match is most effective when it is lit in total darkness. Don't be afraid of the light within you.
