Pursuing lifelong learning

I taught school for 26 years, all but three of those years upper level high school English classes. I prepared well for teaching each day, but every day I was still faced with one question: “Who am I, Lord?”
 
You see, I knew there was always something more I did not know.
 
Something more about an author or a literary work. Something more about how to teach a certain writing form.
Something more about how to teach reading, for goodness’ sake! Oh my, how does one teach someone to read?
 
There’s still more to learn each day even now as I am writing full time from my home.
 
So, yes, even though I am going to be spending the next week at a major writers’ conference teaching others how to write, I ask myself, “Who am I, Lord?” . . . because yes, I still want to learn more myself.
 
So I pray that perhaps even as others take away new skills from my classes, that they will also say, “Who am I Lord?” . . . and that they feel the fire to continue to learn and grow.
