Portfolio for Alana Heyligers



            Teachers are waterfalls.  As a waterfall never ceases flowing, the patience and devotion of teachers is endless. 

 As a high school math teacher, this cartoon reflects on the dedication of my portfolio.  Teachers must possess endless patience, devotion, and humor to deal with the diverse learner of the 21st century.  The work of a teacher is at times grueling, the pay is at times insulting, the thanklessness is at times defeating but the intrinsic rewards, when they occur, are the most fulfilling and inspirational experiences in one’s lifetime.
