From a Creighton Student's Perspective
October 2, 2011
Sophomore, Environmental Science Major
In my education class, we shadow multiple teachers from multiple schools in order to observe and gain knowledge in techniques that work and don’t work in the classroom. My first experience was at a wonderful school; it had been taken care of much like the fruitful vineyard. I quickly discovered how great of an impact the teachers had on the children. As I observed, I noticed how much patience is required to be a teacher. There will be times when your students agitate you, or do not listen, or become distracting; it is in those times some people would give up and call it quits. However, teachers do not. Teachers care for their students. Teachers stay after school to offer extra help. Teachers skip lunch in order to answer a student’s question. Teachers spend hours grading papers, scribbling comments in the corner just to help improve that student’s writing skills by an inch. Teachers give second chances. But what teachers do best is never give up. Teachers never give up on their students, just like God never gives up on us.
