As a teacher though, I feel that this idea of everyone mattering is something we should consider and reconsider every day in the classroom. If we don't go in remembering and knowing how important our students are, then we won't treat them in way(s) that they deserve. Sometimes, it really is difficult to remember this when someone is screaming or messing around or just plain irritates you, but we always need to remember that each and every one of our students matters, no matter what! I really just love this idea and I hope that you enjoy this quote as much as me! When we move back to the states and I get another teaching position I'm going to put it up in my classroom!
I think it's a great lesson to teach our kids at school as well, that everyone, no matter their background, culture, language, race, etc, that everyone matters!
