"Education is not a product: mark, diploma, job, money; It is a process, a never-ending one."
it is really easy to be a excited teacher with a lot of great ideas, but the challenge lies in actually bringing those ideas into fruition. i could fill a book with my ideas, but to actually accomplish them is another thing...
i imagine building a fair and just classroom, one with a foundation of unity. i think of some of my college professors who did this successfully. i wonder if i can impliment those same practices in my classroom. i imagine myself using these practices, but then i usually get distracted by the commotion of teenagers or the burden of creating curriculum. in thinking about my college professors, i belive much of their influence comes out in me--in the way i handle unexpected situations; in how i stress importance on discussion and analyzation instead of book work and memorization. i suppose i am doing a good job, i just question myself all the time. ah, but... isn't that what i'm supposed to do? question myself? i need the challenge. i need that in life.
