I came in this morning because a student asked me to come for tutoring. Has he ever been in for tutoring? Once. By accident. Do I believe he is coming? NOPE. Then why am I here? I'm here because I want to be here for that student no matter what. On the off chance he does actually come, I want to teach him. He deserves for me to be here even if he lets me down. It's not about me, it's about him.
Silver lining? A random kid who I hadn't even planned on showed up and is now doing make up work. Glad I came in. I feel like a teacher today.
