Being prepared to teach
means not needing to prepare a class.
The teacher who is ready to work
is ready for whatever happens.
So the best teacher
remembers who they are.
Though the staffroom shelves are sagging
All that is needed is to be found within the classroom.
By doing you are being.
Not knowing how to do, you don’t know how to be.
