Principal Thomas EL, Your book "I chose to stay" was one of my favorites when I first became an educator and a great motivator. Thank you for the inspiration.

We must not take that lightly....SAVING LIVES. The village raised us and now we must take on what the village represents. It's a work to inspire kids, but the return is you get to watch them develop into greatness. Let's continue to serve!

Teaching is not easy! It’s hard work! God’s work! Love them and believe in them until they believe in themselves! I’m done preaching! Appreciate you Maire...and all those fighting for our little ones!

But I get it...none of us should adopt a “deficit model!” These children bring so many gifts with them to school each day! They need adults who love them before ever meeting them! My single mom....and teachers saved me! Why I still choose to stay for them after 33 years!

It takes a village! Each of us plays a very important role in the lives of the kids we serve each day! As a community we owe it to them to save them from this crazy world we are handing to them! Many are being abused and where I am from...murdered! You just might be SAVING LIVES!

Ask people in private schools with 10 and 15 in a class if it matters! And that’s before we discuss poverty...mental health and other issues we know impact those 25-35 kids in our classes each day! Class size MATTERS!

Very much depends on the people! All we can do is pray for those who don’t work together for the good! Keep fighting the good fight! I respect your opinion and the heart it comes from...

Never said it works that way always! But I would bet it works more often than being unkind and negative!
