To Be A Teacher

If you want to be a teacher, you first have to learn how to play hopscotch and hide-and-seek, learn how to watch a snail crawl, blow bubbles, read Yertle the Turtle. If you want to be a teacher, listen to a distant train, wiggle your toes in the mud and let it ooze through, them, stomp in rain puddles, and be humbled by the majesty of a mountain. If you want to be a teacher, you have to be inspired and inspire. If you want to be a teacher, you have to bring joy into everything, watch in awe a sunset or sunrise, ride on a swing, and respect even a cockroach as a miracle of life. If you want to be a teacher, you have to think silly thoughts, swirl a Tootsie Pop® in your mouth. If you want to be a teacher, you have fall in love each day. If you want to be a teacher, you have to put aside your formal theories, intellectual constructs, axioms, statistics, and charts when you reach out to touch that miracle call the individual human being.  -- Excerpt from the book, Random Thoughts: The Humanity of Teaching by Louis Schmier
