I teach Senior English at Burlingame High School where I have worked since 1992.
I tell my students that their job is to find a question or problem they want to spend their life trying to answer or solve. How to prepare seniors for whatever comes next–that’s my question, that’s the problem I think about.
Every day, I go into the classroom committed to getting it right, doing it better––but knowing that I will only discover new ways to fumble, fail, and, of course, learn. My most important teachers are and always have been my students.
