The essence of a teacher
To capture the essence of a teacher
Is to traverse a mountain
Inch by inch,
Until you reach the peak,
And begin to look around.
But not for long
Because there is an entire range of mountains before you,
And you won’t be satisfied
Until you’ve reached the peak of each one.
But even then,
You’ll look back upon the mountains you’ve scaled
And wonder how you could have accomplished your feat even more effectively.
So you start with a new range
And begin the process all over again.
So far this year my journey to help my students succeed has been successful; just like climbing a real mountain, however, there have been a few trees in the way and some streams that I had to muddle through. But at the end of the year, I am hoping to look back and say,”This has been my best year yet. Now next year, I’ll do it even better.”
