I write during snapped-up moments between classes.
My high school class was awesome – half of the students were away on college tours, so it was just me and eight students, learning the Ablative Case. You can be so much more productive with smaller classes (and yes, they actually asked me questions when they didn’t understand something!). It was beautiful.
My third grade on the other hand…
I certainly could’ve had a better time.
There’s just something about it when kids choose not to participate. Oh, I don’t know. But I’m cute – doesn’t that count for something?
I’m working on patience. That was honestly why I never wanted to become a teacher. Mr. B. (that’s actually what we called him), looked at me one day when I was in high school, and said, “Catherine, you’re gonna be a teacher.”
I said, “No thank you! I am WAY to impatient to teach.”
And I was right.
But that’s the thing: maybe God doesn’t wait til you’re perfect before He makes you do what you’re supposed to do.
Maybe He sends you out and expects you to trust Him. Expects you to work.
Expects the people and things in your life to both sharpen you and smooth you.
