I have a great job in the universe of occupations. What do I do? I'm a "star polisher." It's a very important job. If you want to know how important my job is, just go out at nights and look at the stars twinkling and sparkling. You see, I'm a teacher. The stars are the children in my class. My job is to take them in - in whatever shape they come - shine and buff them, and then send them out to take their places as bright little twinkling beacons in the sky.

Hi and welcome to our class on the web. I enjoy teaching children and my greatest satisfaction is seeing the little stars succeed as they develop a love of learning. Currently, I educate 27 active twinkling stars with diverse abilities.Teaching them demands thoughtfulness and preparing for their educational voyage can be very overwhelming at times.
For me, teaching them is an evolving experience. I’m not the same teacher everyday. My teaching evolves with my acquisition of knowledge, with my continuing experiences in the classroom and with my growing awareness of my students individual abilities. In many respect, the teacher I am today is shaped by my interactions with my little twinkling gems.

It is my hope that these little stars who come into my room each day, become the brightest, shiniest stars in the sky and that the world will become a better place because of them. So as I buff, polish, train and teach them, I tell them they can do anything they set their minds to. I tell them that the world cannot do without them.
As a result every night as I look up at the sky, I'm reminded of my very important job and awesome responsibility. I go and get my soft buffing cloth and my bottle of polish in preparation for tomorrow and for my class of little stars.
