Number 12: You may never know the impact of your influence.
If you get a chance to visit your past, take it. It’s been two years since my old school closed and over the weekend we got together for a little reunion.
These kids were part of my very first class. They were in second grade. Now they’re getting ready to walk into high school.
It was life giving for me.
To see former families. To hear that I made an impact in their families life. To know that I did a good job. To see that most of my students turned out exactly how I thought they would! That the problems we talked about in a kindergarten parent conference actually worked out for the better.
Opportunities like this don’t always happen. You may never get to hear someone say Thank You after the fact. But your influence in a person’s life, that is something that can never take away.
