#ds106 @ds106dc #tdc3733 Three Jobs

I’ve not really been employed at many jobs. While still in my teens I sold Fuller Brush and Avon. I was a checker/sales clerk in several capacities: grocery store, chain store, department store. I even also kept books for the construction business. One job most important to me is, of course, that of mom. It’s not considered a “job,” but really it is so much more, so important and comprehensive, a cultural necessity [and I’m not considering this a gender-specific role or “stay-at-home” one either]. In whatever capacity of “Mom,” it is a job for life.

Everyone already knows I taught for thirty-one years, so there’s that— it fits right in with “mom” or “parent,” though not as replacement, but rather as a guide and person who takes the time to “see” and relate to each student as a person with hopes, confusions, anxieties, dreams, talents, struggles, goals. Then, a teacher and student can work together for success.
