A little magic


OK, not magic - a story about how a kind-hearted teacher inspired a talented boy who happens to have a disability.

Had she not taken the time and initiative with this six-year-old budding photographer, who knows what he - and we - might have missed out on?

Be encouraging - be positive and motivate those who might need it. You are probably helping them more than you know.

I have no images to go with this, so I'll post some that Mr. RK has taken. His mom took that nifty one of him at the top of the post.

And that reminds me of my teacher who encouraged me to perform on stage when I was in school.

It's amazing the difference a good teacher can make in a child's life. I had an English teacher who believed in me when no else did. :)

Great shots!

FB: Isn't he cute?
A: A good teacher makes all the difference. Same with shitty ones!
I: I'd invite you for strawberries - I have some in the fridge. And two cats (not in the fridge!)
E: That's awesome!
Joey: Ditto.
MZ: He takes good ones, methinks.

Teaching is a noble profession. We need more good ones.

I totally agreed about being encouraging - be positive and motivate those who might need it. Sometimes we need to believe in them and don't stop them from shining :)

Nice photos there RK!

Riot Kitty said...

I: Que lastima la verdad!
GT: After he photographed it, he ate it.
S: Thanks!

Wow - what great photos! And that image of Earl Grey makes me want a nap, too. :) Very peaceful.

Lynn said...

Oops - that was Lucky. :)
