The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life. One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He argued: “What's a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher?" He reminded the other dinner guests that it's true what they say about teachers: “Those who can. . . do. Those who can't. . . teach. " To corroborate, he said to another guest: “You're a teacher, Susan, " he said. “Be honest. What do you make?" Susan, who had a reputation of honesty and frankness, replied, “You want to know what I make?"

"I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could. "

“I make kids believe in themselves when no one else will. ”

"I make a C+ feel like a Congressional Medal of Honor and an A- feel like a slap in the face if the student did not do his or her very best. "

"I make parents tremble in fear when I call home"

"You want to know what I make?

"I make kids wonder. "

"I make them question. "

"I make them criticize. "

"I make them apologize and mean it. "

"I make them write. "

"I make them read, read, read. "

"I make them spell definitely beautiful, definitely beautiful, and definitely beautiful over and over and over again, until they will never misspell either one of those words again. "

"I make them show all their work in math and hide it all on their final drafts in English. "

"I make them understand that if you have a dream, then follow it. . . and if someone ever tries to judge you by what you make or what you do, you pay them no attention. "

"You want to know what I make?!" “I make a difference. " “What about you?"
