This is a very good one !

very moving !

From A School Principal's speech at a  graduation..

He said  "Doctor wants his child to become a doctor.........

              Engineer wants his child to become engineer......

              Businessman wants his ward to become CEO.....

              BUT a teacher also wants his child to become one of them..!!!!

Nobody wants to become a teacher BY CHOICE" ....Very sad but that's the truth.....!!!

 

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?"

 

To stress his point he said to another guest;

"You're a teacher, Bonnie.  Be honest. What do you make?"

 

Teacher Bonnie, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied,

"You want to know what Imake?

(She paused for a second, then began...)

 

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

 

I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor winner.

 

I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents can't

make them sit for 5 min. without an I Pod, Game Cube or movie rental.

 

You want to know what I make?

(She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table)

 

I make kids wonder.

 

I make them question.

 

I make them apologize and mean it.

 

I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.

 

I teach them how to write and then I make them write.

Keyboarding isn't everything.

 

I make them read, read, read.

 

I make them show all their work in math.

They use their God given brain, not the man-made calculator.

 

I make my students from other countries learn everything they need

to know about English while preserving their unique cultural identity.

 

I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.

 

Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they

were given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life

 

( Bonnie paused one last time and then continued.)

 

Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing money isn't everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no attention because they are ignorant. You want to know what I make?

 

I MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN ALL YOUR LIVES,EDUCATING KIDS AND PREPARING THEM TO BECOME CEO's ,AND DOCTORS AND ENGINEERS..........

 

What do you make Mr. CEO?

 

His jaw dropped; he went silent.

 

THIS IS WORTH SENDING TO EVERY TEACHER & CEO, EVERY PERSON YOU KNOW. Even all personal teachers like mother, father, brother, sister, coach and spiritual leader/teacher.
