teacher and student fully present

to be fully engaged

when I am most engaged as a teacher
the world feels right to me,
as who I am finds ways
to release the potential within my abilities,
when I am able to engage so that the wheels of what I say and do
actually connect with and help the gears that help others run,

it can be helping pull off a play 
as the producer and enabler,
it can be a day of science,
it can be any time I find a way
for a book, for writing, for history, for volleyball,
to so engage me and student that I am fully present,
and so are they.
