A Thank You To All Teachers

It takes a big heart to help shape little minds.

A Thank You To All Teachers

With the school year just peeking around the corner, it is safe to say that teachers do not get enough credit. Every school year we encounter new teachers that will either make us love or hate school. But the things is they all have one goal, and that is to educate us... I mean that's the reason why we're in school in the first place right?

I get it, some teachers could use a little pep in their monotoned mannerisms, or to be more understanding. But being a teacher isn't easy. It takes someone special to have that type of courage and patience to want to stand up every day in front of many. So I'm going to take this time to thank the teachers that I had and to the ones that I never encountered. This is for you and for all the things that you do.

1. Thank you for always being patient.

Truthfully, having to deal with mood swings, is not fun. Getting frustrated will always be inevitable but I adore all teachers drive of never giving up, and truthfully we wouldn't be where we are now as your past students without all your help.

2. Thank you for all the compliments.

Compliments are awesome, and we can all agree on that. And whenever we would do something right such as getting a good grade from a test, a simple "great job" from you always make our day. It makes us feel ecstatic, to be honest, not only that but it really motivates us.

3. Thank you for all the stories.

To be honest with you half of the time those stories that you tell us is just to kill time when we're just not feeling lecture, and half of the time we actually learn from them and it sticks to us. We appreciate them and we hope that you will continue to tell those stories for the future generation.

4. Thank you for always supporting us.

From always motivating us to reach for our dreams, to telling us to never give up no matter how hard things get, and pretty much becoming like second parents to us... we thank you.

5. Thank you for always challenging us.

Let's be real, we totally didn't like the fact that you challenged us. We usually throw a fit over it which accumulates to us having an attitude towards you. So we apologized for that. If anything thank you for challenging us, because we certainly learned from them, somehow. Challenge is always good because it will only drive us to be better overall.

The big picture here is teachers never get enough credit for what they do. It's not easy. I'm sure there were some tears, some laughter, and some aggravated venting shed in this profession. You certainly have made some kind of difference in each and every one of us. You drove us to be better and to always reach for our dreams. Your passion and faith in us are truly inspiring.

And to all the future teachers out there, continue what you're doing. Believe me, it's a very rewarding profession in which allows you to make a difference in the world of education.

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
