WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED FROM YOUR STUDENTS?
I’ve learned not to give up. Many students are balancing a family life, a work life, and a student life. When I think that my plate is full, I remember students that are balancing much more than I am and they are getting it done!
My students also remind me that there are good people in this world. In a world that is full of challenges and adversity, most of these people want to go out and make a difference. They are advocates for change and sometimes a voice for individuals who aren’t being heard.
Finally, these students have a strong desire to learn. This reminds me that there’s always something new to learn, try, or experience. Learning is something that never ends. Our field evolves as the world changes and the students remind me to be open minded, try new things, and not to sweat the small stuff!
