Teachers are Like Whales

Day 18: Create a metaphor, simile, or analogy that describes your teaching philosophy.

When I was in D.C. this summer at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum I was fascinated by some amazing facts about whales.

I recently reflected on these notes I took while there...

"Whales are mammals who adapted to their circumstances and surrounding. They moved from ocean to land back to ocean. Fossil records traced their transformations."

I jotted down that I wanted to compare the evolution of whales to the evolution of teachers.

--We have to adapt to our circumstances and surrounding too. Teachers must evolve in a way that allows us to function better in our new environments. Even if it's a radical shift like that of the whales. 

Which brings me back to my blog from the other night, Fish CAN Climb Trees!

So what describes my teaching philosophy?

Teachers are like whales! See above. :-)
