Rich Man Looks Down On This Woman Because She Is a Teacher, Her Comeback Made His Jaw Drop

The guests sat at the table to discuss life. A man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem of training.

He argued, “What’s a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher?”
He reminded the other dinner guests what they say about teachers, “Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach.”
To emphasize his point of view, he told another guest; “You’re a teacher, Bonnie Be honest, what are you doing?” Bonnie, known for her honesty and open-mindedness, said, “You want to know what I’m doing?” She paused and started.

“Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could. I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor.”
“I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents can”t make them sit for five minutes without an iPod, Game Cube or movie rental.” She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table, and continued, “You want to know what I make?”
“I make kids wonder.”
“I make them question.”
“I make them apologize and mean it.”
“I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.”
“I teach them to write and then I make them write. Keyboarding isn’t everything.”
“I make them read, read, read.”
“I make them show all their work in math. They use their God-given brain, not the man-made calculator.”
“I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to know in English while preserving their unique cultural identity.”
“I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.”
“I make my students stand, placing their hand over their heart to say the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag, one nation under God, because we live in the United States of America.”
“I let them understand that they can succeed in life if they use the gifts they receive, work hard and follow their hearts.”
Pausing one last time, Bonnie continued, “Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing money isn’t everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no attention because they are ignorant. You want to know what I make?”
“I make a difference.”
“What do you make, Mr. CEO?”
His jaw dropped, and he was silent.
Don’t educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be happy, so they no the value of things, not the price.
