Teaching is like...

product of our reading buddy program,
gr.4/5 & SK classes
Why I write? Because it is healthy.
Why I Write: Celebrate the National Day on Writing   

This is something I had participants finish, a simple writing prompt, at a workshop I gave back in the day when I was employed!

Teaching is like...

..... always driving your car with the accelerator pushed right to the firewall.
..... a wonderful adventure never knowing what each new day will bring.
yard duty!
Teaching is 3/4 inspiration and 1/4 preparation.
..... juggling jello! Just when you think you have things in control, everything changes!
..... starting afresh everyday. No 2 days are ever the same!!
..... a box of chocolates. Some pieces you really savor and enjoy.........and others you feel like spitting out.
..... an opportunity for a better tomorrow.
..... life: the more you give, the more you receive.
..... a unique job because it is never, ever boring. Difficult, frustrating, challenging, but never boring.
..... being the custodian of many keys.
..... being told to dig the panama canal and all they give you to do the job is a plastic kiddie shovel!
..... canoeing through continuous white water.
music workshops.
we wrote a song
.....nothing else on earth
.....floundering around in a dense fog with a lot of much younger people with the occasional glimpse of sunshine to make it all worthwhile

Teaching is

.....like- ly to dominate one's life
.....like- ly to make one cynical, proud, frustrated, angry, happy, sad, etc.
