A Metaphor for Student Teaching

Student teaching is like dropping the box to a 1000 piece puzzle and trying to put it together overnight.

I LOVE teaching. And I am totally up for the challenge. Just like a puzzle is composed of many different shapes, colors, and patterns, teaching is full of complicated, overlapping, and unpredictable factors. Puzzling is enjoyable because it is a challenging process. Teaching is rewarding and fun not in spite of the complications and craziness, but because teachers have the privilege of entering the delightful and mysterious world of children and trying to make sense of it. 

Oh yeah.. and I forgot to mention... the first day of school was wonderful.
