Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Kindness Can Move Mountains


--by cyctw, posted Nov 24, 2021
When I arrived at work this morning I discovered a soy latte on my desk. A coworker had gotten it for me <3.

And then I received a Thanksgiving Gram from a student that reads: "Thank you so much for all of your kindness and support!"

I LOVE my students. As I was talking with one yesterday, I teared up as I told her why I teach. It's not because of the subject at all. It likely was when I began, but not anymore.

Now I teach because of the students. I'm sure I offer something beneficial to them that they will carry with them, some throughout their lives. But every day I receive so much more from them. There are days when I think I'll never quit teaching. I'll just die in the classroom when my time comes.
