Teaching Is Like Gardening

My garden grows and thrives, but no matter how much I toil, it is always a work in progress.

 Plants come in different shapes and sizes. 
Some are ready to please,
and others are a bit rough around the edges. 

Some are just emerging.

Others have trouble developing.

And still others are at risk of failing.

Different members of my garden mature at different times.

While some are in full bloom,

others are just forming blossoms.

It's hard to know just what to expect when I step into my garden at the beginning of a new season. Every year holds new challenges. I survey the situation, make a plan, gather the necessary tools, and begin the never-ending task of tending to each individual plant.
