I read what do teachers make from another online blog. But it hit home for all of us dedicated teachers who want to MAKE a difference in the lives of our students amid all of the teaching bashing and attacks against us and our profession.

The question is what do teachers make?

They make kids wonder.

They make them question.

They make them criticize.

They make them apologize and mean it.

They make them write.

They make them read, read, read.

They make them show all their work in math and perfect their final
drafts in English.

They make them understand that if you have the brains, and follow
your heart, and if someone ever tries to judge you by what
you make, you must pay no attention because they just didn't

"You want to know what teachers make?

What do you make?"
