Little effort

Posted February 17, 2011 from Kenya
My story begins as far as my childhood. But to say the truth I won’t go that far. I have lived life for the sake of entertaining life. I did everything to go to the next level. As far as I was concerned every experience was a connection to the next and it was not my business to care to much. I finished high school and it was another duty to me and I got to the university and began my studies. I chose a course and did my undergraduate and it was another new thing to do. All this was a performance for the sake of life and in the long I expected that life would pay me back. I chose teaching and it all seemed funny the thought that I would teach and influence a soul. It just didn’t feel like my thing. Soon I had to prove that I had been studying and I could practice. So I looked for a school in a little town so that I could carry out one new little thing just like I was doing all my life. When I got to the school I realized these learners didn’t need me they needed a miracle.

. My little efforts were met by a big field. I could no longer do it anymore. I met students full of beauty, potential and despair in my new field. I remembered what it was like to have people give up on me. I tried my best to take a step back but each time I took it they moved closer soon I was in a big field full of opportunity and trust. I could no longer carry my little and give it I wanted to do my best. To prove these children wrong that people out there care that we know how hard it could be. I therefore took my little effort and turned it around and made it an effort to remember. I never knew how important it was to do something for a mission. Writing these today I know my little influence, influenced a person because I know I took my little and taught my best. There people out there without a dream, a hope or even a person to believe in them. I had a dream but never used it for any good but I met a few people with a little effort that made life work for the season. I met my miracle without a hope to find it but instead it found me in those kids.

    I think that teachers who believe in their pupils, who make a difference in their pupils' lives are so important. Knowing that you have influenced someone, changed someone's life or giving someone hope by believing in him or her is a special feeling, a small miracle.

    I think your story is one that so many of us can relate to. Teachers have so much influence and impact on young people's lives. The fact that you were able to remember your struggles and see them in your students is a powerful thing. We often get caught up in going through the motions of life and not really thinking about our passions and goals. It sounds as though you are having a wonderfully positive influence on these students and are a beacon of inspiration and hope as they move through life!
