“Sometimes, I think my students believe that I eat and sleep in the school, never leaving.”
-my mother, on being a teacher
There is likely no other profession that exemplifies the difficulty of seeing another person beyond their career, or role in society, than teaching. My mother often jokes about this, well aware that her students don’t see her as a person, with a life outside of the classroom’s four walls. The one time I visited her, she said, was the first time that any of her students began to see her as a person who teaches, rather than simply their teacher.
We all do this, even with our own family members.

“In the arms of my love I am flying
Over mountain and meadow and glen

I may never come down again.
I may never come down to Earth again.”
-From “Ten Minutes Ago,” Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella
