At conferences, one of my students said, "You know what, Mrs. Munoz? I love and respect you."
This was music to my ears, to which of course, I responded, "I love and respect you."
I am grateful for the ability to be a mirror. I reflect back to my students. In my heart they find space and in turn we are all illuminated.
This friends, is enough. I am grateful for the time I get to spend with students and for the ways in which we shape each others lives.
