  • There aren’t many other professions that allow you to have the kind of impact on a child’s life the way that teaching does. ⁣
⁣
And teaching English (yes, I know I started my sentence with “and”) always made me feel ALIVE. ⁣
⁣
It brought out so much emotion, and joy, and passion. ⁣
⁣
The reason I wanted to become an English teacher was because of my high school English teacher, Mr. Jaeger. He stood on desks, walked around with a wooden sword as a prop, and loved Gatsby and Kerouac and Emerson. ⁣
⁣
What an impact he had on my life!!⁣
⁣
Just know that in some way, YOU are having the same sort of impact on a student’s life in your classroom, too. ⁣
⁣
As the year gets just a little bit closer to starting, I just wanted to remind you of the impact you have and the difference you really DO make. ⁣
⁣
You are amazing 😘

Take back your summer. Take back your Sundays. Take back your TIME. ⁣
⁣
Just like Kasey, an EB Teacher, has taken back her time: ⁣
⁣
“EB Academics has come at such a pivotal time in my life, and I feel like there is hope for me to prioritize family time over urgent teaching needs. I knew there was a way to plan well, teach well, AND have joy, but I was not able to get there myself. ⁣
