to see the student

cheerleading and corrections

I can give no better gift to my students
than to see them true,
it feels much easier
when I see the movements forward,
cheer that success,
and thus build on it,

it feels just as important
when I see the mistakes and deal with them,
though I hate to see the tears
and I hate to feel the iffiness
of whether I got it right,

each kid needs every kind of support I can give:
the cheerleading and the corrections.
