Theme ' Anything Goes'
The sponsor this week is StitchyBear Digi Outlet with the set of digi images the DT used in Challenge #172
This week I had to choose for Ali and me from Panda Bear Designs, the final choice was the Education Stations 8.5 by 11 paper pack available from the StitchyBear Digital Outlet.
Having been a teacher in the past to kids aged 9 to 13 in the UK I always felt the subject matter taught was on no use unless the teacher was passionate about what they did and this passion came across during the lesson. I wonder how many of us can name all the teachers who have played such an important part of our lives, of making us who we are today. I can recall a few teachers, many came and went and left no impression and of those I remember there are only a couple who I can honestly say gave me their gift of passion for something. The others I had better not talk about as the memories are very negative!!!!! Whenever I return home and head out about town I seem to bump into an old pupil of mine even though I left the profession about 8 years ago now. The kids come up to me and say "Are you Mrs. Bradshaw, you used to teach me" etc. I guess if they come to speak to me and generally have a laugh and a hug it means I was the sort of teacher who tended the heart and helped shape the positive aspects of the child's character, as we all know, without confidence and self worth no amount of academic ability is of any use. And so from those beliefs I came up with the sentiment for this card - To teach is to inspire, and you inspire me ......
