He's pushing me to listen.
He's pushing me towards greater research in science.
He's pushing me to find better ways to engage all students and foster a happy learning team.
He's pushing me for more time for share, exploration, and investigation.
He's pushing change in the schedule to accommodate his and others' needs.
I know that this earnest young man is a good teacher. I know that his needs are worthy, and the push important.
So tonight I'll think about the ways that I can respond to the push.
Often it's our students that are our greatest teachers.
