The Work of a Teacher

The work of a teacher—exhausting, complex, idisyncratic, never twice the—is at its heart, an intellectual and ethical enterprise. Teaching is the vocation of vocations, a calling that shepherds a multitude of other callings. It is an activity that is intensely prcatical and yet transcendent, brutally matter-of-act, and yet fundamentally a creative act. Teaching begins in challenge and is never far from mystery.
—William Ayres
