Why to the Fourth Power

 I teach because kids hate tests. And so do I.

actual test paper

I teach because a student asked me yesterday if I could eat 196 grapes in three minutes.
I teach to reach.
I teach to learn.

I teach because crayfish.

I teach because new territory. 

I teach because horizons.


I teach because provocation.

I teach because mindstorms.

I teach because bridges.


I teach because my students believed me when I told them there was a mice bucket challenge.
I teach because trees, because my child, because treehouses.
Me as a literal tree hugger
I teach because curiosity.

I teach because laughter and pigs.
