Was listening to NPR as I headed out to work as usual. When on Morning Edition Claudio Sanchez began “Lessons From The School Where I Failed As A Teacher“. He was trying to find out if he was a good teacher. Towards the end of the show one of his students said “I think you were a good teacher, I feel affection and gratitude for you and the other teachers. I mean I don’t have any feelings that you let us down.” It may not sound like a huge compliment, but it made me think – if everyone I met in life felt that way about me I would consider that a life well lived.
I am sure I have hurt many but I do honestly feel that I have not really meant to hurt or harm them.
