a teachable moment

May 24, 2013

we did our best to take care of them and make them feel loved and secure. people talked about us being brave, but it’s just our job. we love these kids like they’re our own.

i was writing some bologna about how i love all my students and blah, blah, blah.  and then i stopped and thought “hey jenny, this isn’t about you.  you’ve never stared down a gunman or protected a student from a terrorizing tornado.  so how about you stop making this about you and start remembering the people this is about?”  good thinking.
