Don’t Be a Teacher…

If you have a low tolerance for noise.

If you can’t stand stacks of paperwork.

Unless you can think fast and speak slowly.

Unless you can plan ahead and adjust those plans on the spot.

If you are not willing to repeat yourself at least a hundred times a day.

If you are not prepared to encounter your insufficiencies every day.

Unless you delight in learning new things every day or relearning concepts you learned last year, and the year before that, and the year before that.

Unless you know who you are.

If you are not able to reflect and improve.

If you cannot see the lesson within the lesson.

Unless you have a vision for the future.

Unless you can’t give up.

If you don’t value the little things.

If you are unable to see past yourself.

Without Jesus as yours.




About wordvessel

Aloha! Thank you for visiting the Weeklythoughtexhange. I hope you enjoy this healthy exchange of ideas and thoughts. I am a middle school language arts teacher and relish active discussion, frequent reading, writing for leisure and growth, and immersion in new ideas and thoughts. Some of my favorite pastimes include being outdoors with family, friends and pets, traveling the world and country, and embarking on new adventures wherever they happen to find me - in my own backyard or on the other side of the Pacific Ocean.
