Twenty-six

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.
