Learning to teach…

Learning to teach is hard.

It is complex and layered and about the teacher but also not about the teacher.

It is about being vulnerable in a world that discourages vulnerability.

It is about being vulnerable in a career where people who know nothing about your career are trying to quantify the unquantifiable.

Watching people learn to teach is incredible. Watching them choose to engage in the deepest part of themselves while engaging with everything that every student brings with them.

I have had some challenging moments this week. But I would not choose anything else.

  1. I absolutely agree that I would not choose anything else. You are right that it is amazing to watch people learn to teach. You described it so well.

  2. Well said–and good for you for choosing nothing else, even after so many challenging moments. Those moments will continue to come (It’s my 35th year of those moments!). Take them, learn from them and continue to come back with a smile like the one I can feel in this slice.
