Teacher's Help People Bloom


Anne Silva

In the last post, I talked about the teacher who inspired me, and I asked you about the teachers who inspired you. (Check it out here.) Did that get you strolling down memory lane?

When you need a little pep talk about why you chose this line of work (in May, don’t we all need one of these pretty much daily?!), take a minute to reflect on those teachers and those figures in your life, and draw some strength from them.

Jose Martí

Evelyn Silva

"Quien dice educar, ya dice querer", esas fueron las palabras del Apóstol, José Martí. Hoy día 19 conmemoramos un año más de su caída en combate en Dos Ríos en 1895 y no hay mejor manera de homenajearlo que recorriendo su trayectoria como maestro y educador.

José Martí nació en La Habana el 28 de enero de 1853. Con apenas 9 años y tras presenciar el castigo feroz que le proveían a un esclavo, Martí se convirtió en un joven comprometido con la lucha de los desposeídos. Su espíritu antiesclavista e independentista, marcó toda su trayectoria como educador, poeta y líder revolucionario.

Girl Teacher


Anne Silva

“Teachers touch the future,” they tell us. “Teachers shape students’ lives,” they say.

But when you’re in the trenches, knee deep in bureaucracy, unrealistic expectations and hostility from parents and students alike, well, that can seem like a total pie-in-the-sky statement, can’t it?

But bear with me for a second. Think of the teacher who influenced you the most. I’d bet you don’t have a hard time thinking of one, do you? Maybe even more than one? Did you have a teacher who influenced you to pursue teaching somehow?
