Being a Teacher

MY KITCHEN Outreach

Many years ago when, as they say, I wore a younger man’s clothes, I was a high school teacher.

It was brief.

I was not…great at it.

OK, that may be an understatement.

In reality, I sucked at it…probably more than anything has ever sucked in the history of sucking.

I can’t say, with all certainty, that I hated every minute of it, but the moments I enjoyed were few and far between.

All these years later, I’m teaching again, and I love, literally, every minute of it.

Maybe I’m just older and wiser (well, one out of two ain’t bad), or maybe it’s just that I have a passion for the subject I’m teaching.

Or maybe, it’s that the kids that I work with now all have a desire to learn what I’m teaching. They enjoy what they’re learning and always seem eager for more.

Truth be told, you probably don’t have to be that great of a teacher, if you have a classroom full of students with great attitudes.

Whatever the case, I am glad that God saw fit to put me back in this role. I really can’t think of anything I would rather be doing with my life.

Thank you for being a part of that!
