Listening to the video the first time, I thought of how I sometimes feel about my students: students don't care, don't want to read, and are only worried about what's on the outside. Then as the message is read backwards, I remember that there is more to my students than I sometimes give them credit for. By finding the right book, the right moment to have a conversation, the right place to show that I care for them, I can see the real person hidden beneath the indifference. As a teacher, I have to keep trying to find the core of that student. Sometimes I am the only one who believes that my student does have something wonderful to contribute to society. If I don't care, who will? If I don't believe, who will?
