There is this thing that happens
When I'm working with another teacher.
The excitement builds,
Our enthusiasm bursts forth,
And the students delight.
We banter, add on, feed each other,
Our thinking is pushed, our perspectives changed,
Some ideas turned on their head.
When this happens,
I am home,
In the sweet spot,
In the zone, swept away.
I belong to something bigger than myself.

Inspired by The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown

One response to “Belonging”

  1. How lovely! What lucky kids to have a teacher as wonderfully invested as you.
