It's the Small Differences
I am participating in the
March Slice of Life Challenge.
Each day we post our thoughts.
Thank you, Two Writing Teachers!
Day 10 - It's the Small Differences
We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big
difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which,
over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.
--Marian Wright Edelman
I am here.
And I will be here each day
Encouraging, teaching, observing.
I hope to make a big difference in your life.
How can I help you?
What do you need?
Each day we spend together
I see you taking tiny steps
Toward who you can become.
It's the smile I see
When you realize
That you have learned something new.
It's the times I recognize
That you need a pat on the back
And someone standing near you for support.
It's the bounce in your step as you leave the room
For recess with your friends.
A new-found confidence in your step.
It's the excitement I see
When you enter the classroom
Each day more eager to learn.
Those small steps are adding up
To the big differences
In your life as a learner.
I am here
To watch you grow
One small difference at a time.
