For every student who complained, I bet there are five others whose lives you changed by talking about this in front of them and with them. Learning and change and doing better aren’t always comfortable, and it’s too bad that the ones who complained didn’t understand that their discomfort was a sign they needed to change and grow. Thank you for teaching, and for giving so much of yourself to people who you knew might not appreciate it. Thank you for sharing your experience here despite the tiredness it still brings. It’s important.
