This is my classroom as I saw it today. NO, not really. Internally, I groaned when I walked into yet another school room. I’ll be teaching English at a Continuation High School come Monday. I looked at the walls, at the floor (it’s a portable), and sighed. Here we go again.
Then, I started tearing stuff off the walls, and that young woman who first taught in 1981 came out to play. I started seeing possibilities. How will I impart the knowledge that they need to know? How will I help them become productive members of society? That, I think, is the real question. The other question is, with all the interviewing, hustling, transcript ordering, etc., why in the world is God placing me here? What will they learn from me?
More importantly: What will I learn from them??
Today’s run: Yes, I’m going to put my digits up on the board, for myself and to keep honest in Quadrathon’s challenge. You’ll notice I named the run Quadro 1. 🙂 Ate pretty well today, lost a pound. Everybody keep back, I’m winning those prizes!!
