To the students who are busy: Thank you for your time.

To the students who are nervous: Thank you for teaching me about courage.

To the students who laugh when I fumble my words: Thank you for teaching me that imperfections break down barriers.

To the students who gently correct when I make mistakes: Thank you for teaching me the value of patience.

To the students who offer criticism: Thank you for teaching me humility.

To the students who execute an arm balance for the first time: Thank you for teaching me about perseverance.

To the students who tremble as I help with your first handstand: Thank you for your trust.

To the students who seem bored and restless: Thank you for teaching me about facing my fear.

To the students who struggle: Thank you for teaching me to face insecurity.

To the students who watch the clock: Thank you for teaching me to confront inner doubt.

To the students who left early, without explanation: Thank you for teaching me about offering space and understanding.

To the students who never came back: Thank you for teaching me to let go.

For every kind word, every smile, every gift, every gesture of gratitude, and every single time you attend my class, I thank you. You have taught me how to be a teacher.
