|Slice of Life Tuesdays are hosted by Two Writing Teachers|
Today I was pulled out of my classroom, away from my students.
Today I was trained by a representative from a computer-based learning company.
Today I was asked to make meaningful to my students a tool that goes against every grain of my teacher soul.
Today I had a ten-minute break, which I used to check my e-mail.
Today I found this quote tucked at the end of the electronic signature of a friend and colleague of mine:
“If you want to build a ship,
don't drum up people to collect wood
and don't assign them tasks and work,
but rather teach them to long
for the endless immensity of the sea”
- Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Today I was reminded why I am a teacher.
Today I was reminded that I am not alone.
