  •  Been at it 13 years, no burnout here, thanks tho.. (0+ / 0-)

    Every day one of my students (I work as a tutor for a tutoring company) says something which blows my mind.  Yes, I have changed the life courses of many of the young people that I have come across, thank you-in the words of one colleague, I reached one young man when she didn't think anyone could.  A slight course change early on can reap big dividends down the road-believe me I know.

    So you can have your world-weary cynicism, and I'll continue to believe in and practice my philosophy of no limits, be it in the context of teaching or in my own personal life (where the changes have been equally miraculous).

    Signed,

    One Diehard Idealist
