When I became a dad I learned to get more done in less time. I’m more efficient at school so I can have more time with my family.
In the College of Education they told us each parent sends their best kid to school. This makes way more sense now.
Being a dad of a child who is very challenging helps me relate to the parent of the kid who can’t seem to behave in class.
Having a child who is very shy and sensitive helps me understand the stress some kids feel when I ask them to share something with the class. I am more patient and understanding.
Having a child who is visually impaired has given me a much deeper understanding of the impact of a disability and why it is important to make sure these kids get extra help so they have the same opportunities.
