"Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does."
Sometimes it is nice to stop, take a deep breathe, and remember the reason why I became an art teacher. To remember the reason why I LOVE being an art teacher. To remind myself that my job is important. To forget about what is happening outside the door and just teach art! The laughter, smiles, excitement, and happiness I see every day makes reminds me of all these things and always seems to re-assure me to continue doing what I love and a loving what I do.
