Being a teacher is hard.
Some days I wonder whether being a teacher is worth it.
Other teachers have told me in the past, "Students come and go. Don't get used to having any one student around, because they could be there one week, and quit the next week. You're there to teach them how to play the guitar. That's all."
But no matter how hard I try to stay detached from my students, my heart doesn't cooperate, and it aches because I DO care about them, not just as students, but as people.
Today I'm writing from the heart at my other blog, Life is the Teacher. Want to join me there?
