As communicated musically by the legendary Lee Dorsey: what you want is what you get. For a student, that means more than just doing homework. It is a mentality and almost an amicable desperation. Students that make honest "A's" truly want to excel and go beyond what is required. "I'm not your typical type of teacher. I believe in tough love," laughed Kelsey. As a teacher, Kelsey doesn't seek the comfort of being an easy-going, complaisant and unintentional leader. Because she knows the world doesn't revolve around her, she has to be a tough teacher and develop humans of character. "It's okay not to know something. It's not okay to not try and figure it out. My students are capable of so much!" Kelsey said proudly. Daily she reminds her students of the big picture and hopes to show them the real her. Kelsey encourages them that a bad grade is not the end of the world, but that they definitely own that grade. What they also should own is the opportunity to do better. In fact, Kelsey feels that she can do better. She wants to do better with investing in relationships. She has the 'tough love' aspect nailed down pretty well, in my opinion. But, Kelsey hopes to also simply give kindness. In fact, she wants to get back to giving love to a group of people she was passionate about in college. Kelsey cares about the homeless."I'm glad I'm talking to you because I feel like I need to get back into it," she admitted to me. I'm glad I got to talk to Kelsey, as well. She reminded me, even through this project, I'm not the only person in this universe.
