The Work of Our Hands

I thought of this song today while doing classroom walkthroughs and thinking back on several of the wonderful classroom observations I’ve done over the last few months.  I feel a sense of great thankfulness when seeing good teaching.

A masterful teacher rises to the level of sainthood described here in Carrie Newcomer’s song, “The Work of Our Hands.”  People who are fully alive display a commitment to doing good work, whether canning tomatoes, laying bricks, or building young lives.  Doing the best we can do with the task set before us is a high calling and one we must answer as educators.
