Teacher Self Care

A Teacher’s Gratitude

I am a teacher.
I give thanks for dry erase markers that work and pre-sharpened pencils,
for chocolate and caffeine.
I meet canceled meetings, bathroom breaks and snow days with gratitude
and I am thankful
for forgotten fidget spinners and silly bands that’ve come and gone,
for completed paperwork, planned fire drills, and a full night’s sleep.
And as a holiday break arrives,
just in time,
I give thanks
I am a teacher.
I give thanks for challenge and unspoken trust,
for a-ha moments and tears.
I meet the chance to grow, the chance to learn and the chance to love
with gratitude.
And I am thankful
for calm and compromise,
thankful for
the knowledge that I am making a difference,
one human at a time.
