Friday's Favorite Quote for Friday, March 16th

"One of the nice things
about being pulled apart..

is that you get to
come back together again"

-Bert Salisbury March 16th over coffee

No one gets it unless they go through it!
That quote applies to life.

It certainly applies to college teachers at finals time!

I love my job!
I am made to do this!
It is a calling!
God meant for me to be a teacher!

I love my students!
Having time with them in a classroom blesses my life!
I will always be their teacher!

Yesterday was my last day with students this quarter!
There have been countless days of getting up at 2am to grade.

So many have said, "Why do you make so much work for yourself?"

My answer is simple:
My students derserve the best I can give every day!
My students deserve to have high expectations to live up to!

Hard work builds character!

I still have 90 notebooks to grade and 90 take home tests to grade ....
and then final grades!

It's all worth it!

I have been pulled apart...and I am coming back together again!
God Bless! Love, Linda

I agree with Boppa's quote. I've felt like that at times too. I think that God can really reach us when we're pulled apart becuase we are having to rely on his strength to pull ourselves back together.

XOXO, me

And this is why we all cry when we finish our last class with you Linda :) By the end you are no longer our teacher, but family. Thank you so much!

Love you/Bethany
