Laura Arual ran into one of the students who will always stay with her.... five years later and she still thinks he is one of the saddest kids she has ever met. It pisses her off that no matter how much you try, sometimes all you can give them is kindness and not opportunity.

  1. Take it from a kid who had it tough growing up and had exactly 3 teachers who let me know that they were on my side. The boost that gives such a kid, made school all worthwhile. You have no idea what you do as a teacher to let them know that they are important as people, valuable.

  2. I ditto that remark, and also had 3 teachers who cared about me as a person. If that is what you give the kids who come to your class, then I give you A+ as a teacher.
