I told a young student today that it's not my job to judge, but instead it's my job to make sure that my students are safe, happy, and learning.
It's a big, complex, and diverse world out there, and we all face different challenges and events throughout our lives. I have no idea what it's like to stand in another's person's shoes or live the life they have. I trust that most people are good, honest people who do the best they can each and every day.
I actually like the fact that my job is not to judge, but instead to care for my students in ways that I can. This is important to me and to the colleagues I work with--we want to do well by children, that's our call.
