Like many of you, I can’t seem to shake this anxiety this week’s events has left. It seems like nothing will change and it’s hard to stop thinking about all the lives that were cut short. I’m trying to change my focus to things I can control; my actions in and out of the classroom.
I can control what I teach them and how I support them. I will encourage them, dry their eyes, and laugh with them. I will get frustrated with them, but then forgive. I will celebrate and protect them.
I will do all this because I can help them become good men and women. That I can control.
