55 Thoughts for English Teachers

Here is something to think about being an English teacher:

All of a sudden, I have been teaching public school English for a
decade. Why am I surprised? I never thought I would be a high school
teacher. I never took education courses. Only now am I beginning to
reconcile my different professional selves: teacher, adjunct professor,
and writer.

For years I avoided writing about my full-time profession. From 7:20
to 2:21 each day, I teach literature and creative writing courses at a
large public high school in New Jersey. The day stretches much longer
than that, but those are my salaried hours. I love kids, and I love
books, and I love writing.
