I feel like a chihuahua staring into a lion's mouth. This is how one of the freshmen students described how it feels to present a speech in front of the class. That line was one of the best things that happened to me today. I have been toting that image around with me, seeing the horrifying yawn of demise...phrased so beautiful. As you might imagine, the student's speech and delivery were impeccable.
Days like this, I am grateful to be a teacher and honored that students participate in the creative process of learning.
