    •  It is certainly making me think. (4+ / 0-)

      I know what I do for a living, but not what I am; not in the same way you know that you are a teacher.  I am still young yet (mid thirties), so there is time for discovery, perhaps.  At any rate, something to rest my subconscious on tonight.

      •  I did not decide to head for teaching until 1994 (0+ / 0-)

        at which time I was approaching my 48th birthday.

        It takes some of us longer to figure things out

        I think the breadth of experience I had before pursuing teaching made me a better teacher.

        The few months I spent as a car salesman was some of the best preparation for teaching I had.
