I’m Not Myself When I’m Teaching. I’m Better!

 

There was a time there when I thought that I wasn’t the real “me” when I was teaching. That is was all a bit of an act.

I no longer feel that way.

In fact, I suspect it is the opposite.

Teaching has given me the opportunity to be my best self. I suspect that I am more myself when I am teaching than at any part of the day.

The confidence, the humor, the ability to take risks and try new things, it’s all characteristics that I should be exuding in everyday life. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, it’s restricted to the classroom.

That’s why, whilst others celebrate school holidays, I dread them.

Teaching, after all, represents a return to me.
