Teaching is a thing of joy. And few have expressed it so well as Shakespeare in his Fairy Song.
A Fairy SongWilliam Shakespeare
Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire!
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moon’s sphere;
And I serve the Fairy Queen,
To dew her orbs upon the green;
The cowslips tall her pensioners be;
In their gold coats spots you see;
Those be rubies, fairy favours;
In those freckles live their savours;
I must go seek some dewdrops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip’s ear.
Teachers learn to beg, borrow, and steal. In fact, it may be their only hope of survival. This site exists to facilitate such activity.
And so we wander everywhere, always searching. And in the searching, always hoping to hang some pearl in the common cowslip’s ear.
The most valuable resource all teachers have is each other. Without collaboration our growth is limited to our own perspectives.Robert John Meehan

Kyle Lehman taught for four years in a small church school in Rosedale, British Columbia. After one year away from teaching, he returned to teach for one year in Burns Lake, British Columbia. He again skipped a year to marry his beautiful wife, Claudia. They are currently both teaching in Paltinis, a small village in Caras Severin, Romania.
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
