Teachers are an amazing lot. Equal parts talent, perseverance, patience, wisdom, drive, passion, stamina, empathy, and about 200 other attributes. But we also all encounter frustration. The amount of that frustration can be tiny or enormous, and the source can be singular or manifold. It can range from being a nuisance to being downright debilitating. At those times I remember the wonderfully profound words of Edward Everett Hale: “I am only one; but still I am one. I cannot do everything; but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.” And that, my friends, is what makes you a teacher.
