Just Because…

Just because I’m an elementary school teacher

Doesn’t mean

I don’t read Shakespeare and the New Yorker magazine.

Just because I’m an elementary school teacher

Doesn’t mean

I can’t earn a doctoral degree.

Just because I’m an elementary school teacher

Doesn’t mean

I can’t teach undergraduate and graduate students.

Just because I’m an elementary school teacher

Doesn’t mean

my preparation for classes isn’t sophisticated and insightful.

Just because I’m an elementary school teacher

Doesn’t mean

 I’m tough-skinned and oblivious to unfair criticism of my profession.

Just because I’m an elementary school teacher

Doesn’t mean

I can’t do so I teach….

I can do….I inspire!
