WHAT TEACHERS MAKE
The  dinner guests were sitting around the table
discussing life.  One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with
education.  He argued,
"What's a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher?"
He reminded the  other dinner guests what they say about teachers:
"Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach."
To stress his point he said to another  guest;
"You're a teacher, Susan.  Be honest.  What do you make?"
Susan, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied, "You want to know what I make?

"I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.
I make a C+ feel like the winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor.
I make kids sit through 40 minutes of study hall in absolute silence.

"You want to know what I make?
I make kids wonder.
I make them question.
I make them criticize.
I make them apologize and mean it.
I make them write.
I make them read, read, read.
I make them show all their work in math and perfect their final drafts in English.
I 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 learn."

Susan paused and then continued.  "You want to know what I make? 
 'I MAKE A DIFFERENCE.'  What do you make?"

"Teachers make every other profession possible"
