Teaching is good for my soul, because. . .

. . .it keeps me playful.  On lunch duty this week, I got to jump rope, play tag, and feed sugar and carrots to imaginary horses owned by a couple of second graders.  In the classroom, it is appropriate, even helpful, for me to crack jokes, use silly voices, sing, dance, make up crazy hand motions, and otherwise be fun.  I take teaching seriously (my friends who have heard me anguish over classroom management and curriculum and uncompleted homework can, sadly, attest to this), but when I’m at school, I can’t take myself too seriously.
