At different times throughout our lives, and in any given semester, we all question our ability to teach and wonder if this profession is really for us and if we are making a difference with our students.

Click on the link to reveal Maryellen Weimer’s thoughts about teaching. Weimer also refers to another article entitled A Teaching Life by Christa Walck (click on PDF, top right) that takes a deeper look at the same topic.
