It's the little things.  A student told me today that I am the only teacher she can talk to.  The other ones don't listen to her and just brush her off because they're too busy, she says.  Too busy?  Too busy to listen to one of the people whose life you will be molding and shaping?  Too busy to find out what's going on in the life of a young person who relies on you to impart wisdom, stability and a good example?  Too busy to do the job you chose?  Hmmm...

My teenage students don't seek me out very often, but when they do you can bet I'm listening.
