The Story Behind The Teachers

Tanyah Ali

“Why do teachers do what they do?”  You may ask yourself, or saying that this work is too much work, but is there a reason for them being a teacher?  well yes becase I asked Mr.Brown why he wants to be a teacher and he said “To inspire students.”  When I am in his class he always has an inspiring quote in the front of the class and I wrote one of them and it says “Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some 5 balls in the air.  You name them- work, family, health friends, and spirit.  And you are keeping all these in the air.  You will still undersand that work is a rubber ball.  If you drop it, it will bounce back.  but the other four balls- family, friends, health, and spirit are made of glass. if you drop one of these , they will never be the same.  You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.”  There is always a story behind the teacher.
