To Sum It Up


Teach-ing  \=\  v.  1. That state of being in which all waking seconds are allotted to others  2. The delightful art of exploring unknown lands from Mt. Mitchell in the east, fording the ‘Great Water’, and crossing Death Valley   3. Expanding vistas with Mr. Popper and Captain Cook    4. Being enriched by seeing life though little people’s eyes  – we have a spider just like the one outside the schoolhouse door and we watched it wrap up a fly in its web    5. Hearing giggles as we read ‘Antonio, Antonio went off on his polonio…’    6. That fantastic treasure hunt for those antiqued math facts hidden in dusty attics    7. Is saying, Hmmm, I wonder too    8. Praying, Dear God, I don’t have what it takes, You do. You created these dear little people. Please help me understand them and help me as I open doors and walk before them. The task is energizing, awesome, and frightening. May they see You. Amen

Synonyms: Nurse, Coach, Motivator, Lunch Monitor, Juggler, Shepherd
