Who honestly try to see the best potential in each of their students.
Who spend their own money on supplies because it's what the STUDENTS NEED.
Who don't take disrespect/threats/violence personally when the student has deep personal/family/emotional/mental issues.
Who can approach an angry/violent/disrespectful student calmly and honestly try to help them while swallowing their pride.
Who stops the negative outside influence and hate at their door to create a positive, peaceful learning environment at least for that class.
Who, while the world criticizes them and their students, still comes in every day as a new, hopeful day.
Who continue to get up earlier than necessary to do their job well - not for the pay, not for the recognition- but because it needs to get done.
