Are You a Teacher?

My whole life, people who’ve met me for the first time have asked me, “Are you a teacher?” My answer, in the beginning, was sort of a shy no, but as the years past I just smiled and wondered whether maybe they were onto something.

At the end of November, I had the pleasure of being the guest speaker for the first writing conference of the local elementary schools. I blogged about the experience, about how impressed I was with the fifth-grade authors in the room. Yesterday, I received some photos from that day, including the one below. Thank you to Lisa Dossiano, the students’ fearless leader and teacher of the gifted program, for giving me the opportunity to spend time with such tremendous talent. I look forward to doing it again.

And, maybe one day, permanently.

  1. I was a school teacher… retired now. I have a daughter who is a teacher and while she was working as school librarian and media tech in a brand new school I got permission to accompany her and help get the library and computer lab set up. It was such a joy to be back in a teaching environment even if I wasn’t the one “in charge”, and of course I loved processing all the new books! You sound like you’d make a great teacher.
