  •  I'm a teacher (4+ / 0-)

    and I thank my students for that. I'm sitting in the student meeting room in Bldg 12 at MIT waiting for a student with whom I will discuss Pride and Prejudice, with the goal of helping the student write an essay which will be a close reading of some passage in the book. The last time I worked with this course I had such excellent conversations with the student writers that I turned right around and read the novel again, for the 2nd time in a month. I'm glad I came to teaching relatively late, even though it's the most satisfying thing I've ever done, because I won't ever have time to lose my enthusiasm for the work, as seems to have happened to the occasional teacher of my acquaintance.
