No matter how long I teach, I will always be an apprentice. Just when I feel I have mastered my art, I discover a new technique or a new philosophy. Each new year brings me a fresh canvas, a clean sheet of paper. New students, fresh supplies. As in art, teaching allows me to have a fresh start every year. I can try something new every year. I can continue to revise and develop my craft, and, although I will never reach perfection, neither will I stagnate.

  1. I was an Elementary secretary for several years. (Up until last year.) You sound like an excellent teacher!! Kids and adults all enjoy learning from someone who themselves enjoys learning and sharing the joy!! Blessings on your new blog!! Denise
