"So I've been hearing this phrase y'all got over here that I ain't too crazy about. 'It's the hope that kills you.' Y'all know that? I disagree, you know? I think it's the lack of hope that comes and gets you. See, I believe in hope. I believe in belief."
As teachers, we often find ourselves in challenging situations where our students may be struggling or facing obstacles. In those moments, it's easy to get discouraged and lose hope. However, as Ted Lasso reminds us, it's not the hope that kills us; it's the lack of hope. Believing in the potential of our students and maintaining a sense of hope is crucial in our role as educators.

When we have hope and belief in our students, we can provide them with the support and encouragement they need to overcome difficulties. We can inspire them to reach their full potential and help them believe in themselves. We just can't control the timeline.
By fostering a positive and optimistic environment in our classrooms, we create a space where students feel motivated, valued, and capable of achieving their goals.
Some weeks, it feels like a dark cloud is hovering over certain students and even classrooms. The challenges that many of our students face are daunting and can be discouraging. As someone who has been teaching for 25 years, I have witnessed many struggling students overcome these challenges and come out stronger in the end.
It's important to remain hopeful. Life has a long arc, and it's easier to be happy when you believe that most things will work out in the end.
