As I was reading the newspapers over my espresso this morning, the same habit which I have nurtured for years came creeping in again - all the articles were instantly turned into reading passages and my mind started working vigorously fidgetting which article was good for a vocabulary quiz and which one for a guided writing task! I am not complaining because I enjoy doing so. Can you believe it? I am a proud teacher and a happy one! And I live my life as a teacher! Being in the career for close to 50 years, I know I have to live my life as a model for my students! I try hard and can still try harder!
