I Feel Real

Sometimes, after an in-class workshop, an adult in the school will come over and say something astounding like "Wow, you guys were great with those kids. What's your real job?"

Just smile, and wonder who it is they think they're talking to.

Also: From The Reflective Practitioner by Donald Schön:

"In each case, the practitioner gives an artistic performance. He responds to the complexity, which confuses the student, in what seems like a simple, spontaneous way. His artistry is evident in his selective management of large amounts of information, his ability to spin out long lines of invention and inference, and his capacity to hold several ways of looking at things at once without disrupting the flow of inquiry." (page 130)
