Running In Place


I was reminded today, as I stood in front of my students with my aching back, the funniest and most profound statement I had ever heard about the profession of teaching, words uttered by a veteran high school teacher I once knew:

“The amazing thing about teaching,” he said, “is this: each year, you get older, but the students stay the same age.”
