Why am I an uncommon teacher? Because I don’t want to be a common one! Also, I bring much life experience to the profession. I am entering into this noble vocation later in life after having lived in ten different locations, including a cruise ship and Prague, CZ, and after having had a career as a dancer and actress in my twenties and as a stay-at-home Mom in my thirties. I have adapted the term “uncommon” teacher from the late great Wendy Wasserstein’s play “Uncommon Women and Others,” which centered around characters at Mount Holyoke College, my alma mater. As I blog, I plan to share my thoughts and plans while studying in a post-baccalaureate teaching certification program and while entering the field of teaching in a public elementary school. My intention is to become an outstanding, certainly not common, teacher, but I know I have a lot to learn as I journey to that ever changing, ever-evolving destination!
