The interns were eager to hear about the tools my students and I use and how they take our learning beyond our classroom. The questions they asked were great and showed their interest in designing and establishing in their own classrooms someday. As we talked about instructional decisions and their outcomes I realized how many decisions are behind each small choice we make. Many of these choices have become a habit, something we just do. I also felt pride in our profession and an a sense of anticipation in these new teachers, they too will be professional educators soon.
I was surprised at how much I really enjoyed sharing and teaching at this level. I was humbled and honored to think about the opportunity to influence so many classrooms through these young and excited teachers!
I may have found a new interest to pursue.
