I Got Published!

solSOL Tuesday

Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for a public and have no self. ~Cyril Connolly

A while back I wrote a blog post for the PA Writing and Literature Project on why I teach.  I was very excited to have it posted on Project’s blog.  Last week that post was selected to be posted on Workerstories.org.

I did originally write that post for myself and was not worried about having a public, but if I am to be totally honest…. I LOVE THAT IT IS GOING PUBLIC AGAIN!

I  put a link to the piece below.

I Am a Teacher

  1. I especially loved the phrase, “cheer the unexpected.” I think that is why I teach – there are so many moments that cannot be predicted, but can be cheered, or can cheer us!

  2. Loved your piece and especially this sentence: “Teaching gives me permission to be a life-long learner, to read and write and share my passions with my students.” I say amen to these words. And being published again is no little thing – it deserves a celebration!

  3. Lighter of a spark
    Tender of the flame
    Guide to discovery
    Champion of Learning

    All of it, bute especially these *bullet points* if you will.

    I am glad you were republished, I may never have had the chance to read and enjoy your wonderful piece. Like an internet meme this should resurface from time to time as a reminder. Brava!
