It is real.
I am doing this as service, not for myself.
Over at The Daily Grind (h/t to Dana Huff at huffenglish... and how I didn't catch it myself as I have The Daily Grind on my reader), Mr. McNamar proposes the Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teachers, with apologies to Dr. Steven Covey.
- Be Yourself
- Don't Move on until the Concept is Understood
- It's about the students
- Go with what works
- Don't Give Up
Okay, that's not saying much, perhaps, but they have spoken to me. Habits 1, 2, 5, and 7 resonate with me in my current situation.
My call is sure. My skills are honed. My passion is aflame.
I am ready to serve.
