For the past 10 years, I have really enjoyed working as a Teacher and a School Literacy Coach.
Here is my "I am" poem about all of the different aspects of my life...
I am me, Amy, wife, mom, teacher, coach...and a writer?!
I wonder...can really write everyday…
I hear twinkling music, snoring, coughing, crying…
I see streetlights, headlights, nightlights, desk lights.
I want a quiet moment with the keys and the screen...
I am me, Amy, wife, mom, teacher, coach and a writer?
I pretend I am listening really thinking--
my mind is drifting…about my next piece of writing
I feel a shiver, a shudder, a quiver-wondering if I can be free?
I gently touch the keys to break free from distractions!
I worry am I spending time when it matters...
I cry when I realize nothing stays the same!
I am me, Amy, wife, mom, teacher, coach and a writer.
I understand why nothing stays the same.
I say that change is a good thing.
I dream that change can happen and be positive.
I try to reflect on the outcome of change!
I hope that reflection can lead to growth.
I am me, Amy, wife, mom, teacher, coach and a writer!
This poem about me was inspired during the beginning of my personal work to become better at writing so I could teach it better...inspired by my friend Sue.
