" EVERYTHING starts small."
Mildred Kay Williams --- Submitted by Adam Schmidt
Examples:
1. Â Many children's births, even your grandparents' births, started with a little look, smile, hi, hello.........

2. Â Everything is made up of atoms.

3. Â One of many good scientific theories is that our entire universe began as one "singularity". Literally nothing is smaller than that. It's infinitely small.

4. Â All life began as one single protein.

5. Â A spark..............then a forest fire.

I'm a teacher because I care,
I'm a teacher because we are rare,
I'm a teacher because I come to class prepared,
I'm a teacher because I want your chance to be Fair.

" Another school year has begun; another year of 'Don't Knows'. It's is the time of year when you enter each new class and look into the eyes of children. They are children with love, without love, lonely children, hungry children, frustrated children. As we look deep into their eyes we see the longing to belong, to be heard, to be loved.

As teachers we wonder how it is ever going to be humanly possible to teach them Math, English, How to Succeed, How to Put their Past Behind Them, How to Make Great Individuals of Themselves? If we are going to attempt this feat with our own human strength, we will have failed even before we begin.

Let us see them as mirrors reflecting what many of us were years ago. Let us see them as we would see our own children. Let us not segregate ourselves from these darlings, in trouble teen rainment. Let us clothe them with wisdom, love and understanding. With Jesus as our Master Teacher, we can make angelic scholars of the fertile souls set before us."
