On Being a Teacher
…why teaching is my calling.
If not for a deep love of children
Wanting for all of them a better world
A better attitude with which to embrace the world they have,
A more confident outlook that it will someday be more acceptable…
Teaching them every day would be a drudged chore.
Caring that they have and are
All these things
Brings me to them.
The sadness of it is…
They don’t even realize.

I wrote the stories in THE CHILDREN’S STORYBOOK for children 8 – 10 years old. A course from The Institute of Children’s Literature in Redding Ridge, Connecticut led me to write them. The first publication of them is here.
