How much of the stuff that they make you teach us

Do you really want to teach? He asked

What are you talking about?  I reply.

I LOVE this stuff!

We’re passionate about our subject,

glory in the possibilities,

long to share wisdom!

Do you know how many years I studied this stuff?

I adore it all!


how wonderful when we connect students to our subject

so they are empowered by it, too.

    Shawn – the words here are so true – and as a teacher I smile – but also remembered back to when Mrs. George was so excited about literature – think it was a shakespeare section – where she broke it down for us – and her passion was contagious – and I imagine yours is too….

  4. That’s what keeps the baton passing along: Passion!
