I’ve been a teacher for over 20 years. I know, I know. When did THAT happen?

Many of those years found me teaching writing. Has it been worth it to grade all of those papers class after class, term after term, year after year?

Has it?

Yes. For the students is has, but for me as well.

I’ve become a contributing writer at Godly Writers (I’ll admit the name makes me feel a little uncomfortable because I am decidedly more ungodly than I’d like and I don’t want to presume to speak for God. But I do desire that my life reflects God, so in that sense I am a Godly Writer).

Today is my debut post in which I share three lessons I’ve learned after grading thousands of essays. Would you be so kind as to pop over and post a comment so as to give me a tiny bit of face?

Thank you kindly … that smiley face up there, that’s me thanking you for your help!

Amy :)

    Have you been reading my mind? I have been reflecting on the same things in relation to the writing courses I taught/teach. The greatest gift of being a writing instructor is: the privilege of getting to know one’s student for the person they’ve been created to be :)
