[A serious teacher speaks from the trenches, most eloquently and I hate to say, accurately.] I’ve always been a teacher. Even before I received my teaching credentials 34 years ago, I was the one who Mr. Wells asked to help Kim Hull learn how to do his story problems. I always knew I’d become a real teacher some day because Kim told me I was the first one who ever explained it to him in a way he could actually understand. Now, I wasn’t ever one of “those who can’t, teach,” and I always knew it.
