A Special Note to Moms and Teachers

As teachers, we wear lots of hats.  We are nurses, counselors, secretaries, cheerleaders, and detectives.  Most of all, we are mothers.  Nurturing and caring; always looking out for the best interest of our students.

"Mom?  I mean…. Miss Woodward!" my students sometimes blurt, completely embarrassed.  
I laugh to myself, and wonder how I can possibly be thought of as a mom.  I'm a twenty-something teacher, not a mom.

This note was left on my desk on Friday afternoon.

I cried.  And smiled.  
Even when I feel as though I can't go on another day, I realize that I am making a difference.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers, and teachers, out there.
