So God Made a Teacher

These words from “So God Made a Teacher” truly exemplify our faculty and support staff at Kimber Hills Academy who go above and beyond in their love and care for our students and our families.  I thank God for their unrelenting and tireless commitment because they know “that in their care lies the future of humanity.”   Watch this video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJJlCzVRtmQ and be blessed!

 

And on the 8th day God looked down at the world and said, “I need someone to help me.”…Someone that will rise with the sun and go to work empowered with the knowledge of change and growth and development.

 So God made a teacher…

I need someone that will love a child that’s been hardened by life, unforgiving and relentless…someone that will see the potential in each youthful eye…someone that will give and give and give some more just when the giving seems gone.

 So God made a teacher…

Someone that will come in before school, stay in at lunch, and remain in class until the last hand has been lowered, until the last question has been answered and smile as the last mind leaves the room to wonder about all the things they learned that day.

 So God made a teacher…

They have to be committed to kids, to the success of each child in the hallways, the playgrounds, the buses, the classrooms, the gymnasiums, and the libraries; never turning a blind eye to prejudice to injustice always standing up for what is right.  Knowing that in their care lies the future of humanity.

 So God made a teacher

…A person that will endure the persecution of the government, the ire of the public, and the occasional condemnation of misguided parents in the hopes that their rooms are the safety place for children…A person that loves without condition that gives without reward, that plans and builds and carries out the mandate of the day ready to review, rework, and revamp the lesson for tomorrow…Someone tireless in the pursuit of excellence. 

So God made a teacher…

Someone that spends their Saturdays shopping for Dollar Store pencils, papers, markers, and books when the budgets are spent.  I need someone that can make ten presentations on ten different subjects and track hundreds of students across several disciplines making sure that each “I” is dotted and each “t” is crossed. 

So God made a teacher…

I need a person that cares more about children than they do about themselves.

So God made a teacher…

Someone that will get a letter or a call near the end of their career from a student they had so many years ago telling them how they changed, shaped, or open their minds to limitless possibilities and know that there is no greater calling than to be what God made them. 

God made a teacher…
