Your Influence in Your Reading and Writing Classroom Lasts Forever

For this weekend, we wanted to highlight a simple idea. For teachers of reading and writing, you'll find that, even decades later, your students remember a few things. It might be that one book you shared with them that completely changed their life. Or it could be their passion for writing poetry. The idea remains the same: for many of our students, it's impossible for them to imagine a world without us, because our encouragement, our support, and our patience can often be the catalyst for a lifelong direction. Watch the video we've included here to get a sense of just how powerful that influence can mean for our students, long after they've left our classrooms.
