Have You Tried, Trying?

This is the second of four posts for Live 58. They are doing some amazing things, and I am honored to be a part of it.

I remember my first interview for teaching well. The panel of teachers and administrators asked all the questions I expected them to, and I answered in much the ways they expected me to. But then I got this question: “If you leave this school, three or four or five years from now, what legacy do you want to leave?”

Sometimes the truth pops out of your mouth before you realize it is true. “What I want kids to say about me is this: I didn’t even know I was capable of what I accomplished in Ms. Norman’s class.”

What does this interview have to do with the Israelites? Go here for the second part of my reflections on Isaiah 58.
