Teachers do many jobs during the duration of our professional lives, some of which are not part of our job descriptions. We maintain focus on several things at once, wear many hats at any given time, engage in professional learning on our own, and come back to do it all over again at the start of every school year.
During my 27 years of teaching I have served in many capacities within a variety of schools, including three countries and two continents. I have been a classroom teacher from early childhood to middle school, served as a curriculum coordinator, learning leader, and ESL teacher. I have taught all subjects and have given workshops within my schools and at international conferences. I have mentored teachers, formally and informally. I attend conferences, read professional books, engage online with other teachers, and do post graduate work. I am always looking for ways to keep learning.
I am a teacher. A jack of all trades.
