Teacher as Imposter


I once watched the movie Speed and asked why Sandra Bullock didn’t just stop the bus.

Now I teach comprehension.


I once poured glue all over my hands so I wouldn’t drop the ball during recess.

Now I teach sport.


I was once asked to recite my tables and replied, “Dining Table, Kitchen Table, Tressle Table …”

Now I teach Maths.


I once humiliated myself by spelling organism incorrectly.

Now I teach science.


I once shattered a shower screen.

Now I teach singing.


I once thought General Patton was a make of car.

Now I teach history.
