I am a Teacher because they are my Students

July 13th, 2016

The daily read of 禅(ぜん)のことば seems to always bring me the words I need that day.

Today’s phrase 啐啄同時. 

 -This is a sound that a baby bird makes when trying to get out of the shell.

啄 – Looks like the 卒 in 卒業, graduation, but it refers to the sound that a mama bird makes when cracking the baby bird’s shell.

同時 – at the same time.

This phrase reminds me of how important my students are to me, how much I have learned from them, and how much I appreciate them.

I am a teacher because they are my students.

Thank you students!! I look forward to seeing  you again.
