I have chills! :)
This is a great video, a great animation, great narration, great story, etc. FLAWLESS :)
What hit me is the story, I am an elementary teacher, and many times as a teacher I feel the same way.
Kids are amazing, they are an inspiration, every day the manage to make me think about my work as a teacher, every day they make me think about my life and the future.
The emotions I feel when I teach are indescribable, happiness, hate, anger, frustration, joy, love.
Every teacher can tell you about that kid that made you think about quitting, that kid that you could´t handle, that kid that that made you cry.
But you can´t blame the kid for the emotions you feel, you can´t blame the kid for his continuos bad actions, you can´t blame the kid for constantly making your life a living hell.
Yes, many times is because of bad parenting, bad education, bad society, the medias, bulling, bad diet... but as a teacher is your job to help the kid with his behaviour, to show the kid how to care about the classmates, the teachers, the school and the world. This video made me see more clearly how the only one to blame in a situation like this is the teacher, you have to stop a situation like this from the beginning, and not with hate but with love. Baby steps, little by little , show the kids what amazing thing is to share, show the kids how amazing is the forest and how to explore it, how to act in a dangerous situation without fear... and if you can´t handle the situation by yourself ask for help, help from other teachers, report to the parents from the beginning, ask the same kids what solutions can we find to protect the school from the man in the woods, they will surprise you!
As teachers I make a lot of mistakes and every day I learn from them.. Thank you for this video, I never stop learning!
