Are you a teacher who writes?

Are you a teacher who write_ WP Large


Are you a teacher who writes? It’s a simple question. I am, and I’m proud.

With a profession as important as teaching, I often feel like 100% of my time should be dedicated to my job. Most of the time, it is.

I’ve spent many Saturdays and Sundays grading papers and reading young adult novels, preparing lessons and tweaking those final-yet-impactful details that make a good lesson great. To be honest, I love the lifestyle, but sometimes I want to work on my own projects.

While most teachers can sympathize, teacher-writers often have an extra variable to add to the work-life balance equation. When do we dedicate time to our creative projects? When can we chip away at the looming manuscript in our living room? Is there a happy blend of teaching and writing?

I’m sure there is. At the end of the day, I’ve found what works for me. 

Are you a teacher who writes? How do you do it?
