Why?

“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.”

Henry B. Adams

Teachers… Have you ever asked yourself that very question? Why?  Why are we getting up day after day before the sun, leaving our own family to work with someone else’s children? Why are we working more than an 8 hour day to make lessons? Or are we really just making lessons?  Why am I doing this day after day?

That is a question I never asked myself in the first few years of my career because frankly it didn’t matter. I was the teacher.  I would plan. I would get through the curriculum. I would complete the tasks put before me, but did I really?  Are “they” tasks  or are they so much more than that?

Through this blog I hope to share how I see the “task… Beyond the Whiteboard!
