professional development


i’m more of a kindergartner
teachers sip flavored coffee
my travel mug holds chocolate milk
Brown Bunny resides in my purse
where i should have a planner
i’m still the hesitant student
how can i fit in?
talk of insurance policy i bail
i got my parents still
around me they type i write by hand
maybe i’ll never be the traditional teacher
but i’ll connect with my students
until they outgrow me too

what’s next




by day I’m ready to teach
ignite curiosity for knowledge
promote excitement for application
by night I’m still a student
honing my educating approach
pursuing my writing, my dream
to be quintessential in showing grit
so I’m not just a speaking influence
I’m a telling model to my students
set goals, work hard and achieve.
