As cliche as it sounds and inaccurate as it feels in many a difficult moment, we can never out-give kids, never. I don’t regret any second of time I’ve spent over the past 11 years trying to help kids learn stuff. I regret a lot of other seconds, but not those ones. I’ve received exponentially more than I’ve given.
So thank you, kids. Thank you for teaching and blessing me. Thank you for listening and for goofing off. Thank you for playing with me and accepting me into your world. I will dearly miss you.
