That time I learned to write creatively.
𝗙𝘂𝗻 𝗳𝗮𝗰𝘁: I was the ahole class clown. Like literally did anything for a laugh. Who knows? I came from a house where my 3 older siblings were 10+ years away from my age. Tons of adult jokes I’m sure landed on these tiny ears during my toddler years. Well, here I am in 4th grade.
👩🏫 And even though Mrs. King was literally the kindest, most empathetic teacher there was, I still had to roll out the barrel of laughs every chance I got. These poor teachers, I tell you.
But no matter how much Mrs. King let slide, there was one thing I’ll never forget that she taught me.
How to write. And moreover, how to write creatively.
Some of you may know, but I dabble in sketch and screenwriting outside of my usual Resume Writer title I carry.
Creative writing was an outlet for me.
A chance to explore the world with just my fingers, a pencil, and some blank paper.
I even submitted some of my “works” (lol) to contests.
But no matter the journey I’ve had thus far as a human being. There will always be those few people that truly stand out in your life and directly impacted where you are at today.
If it weren’t for Mrs. King, I may never have a chance to do what I do for a living. Write.
And I couldn’t be more indebted to her.
So to all those teachers out there. Former, current, aspiring…keep doing what you do. You are the most undervalued people in the proverbial workforce. Your job is not easy.
Crazy students (some aspiring comedians).
Crazy administrative issues.
But you’re doing God’s work and your work is appreciated over here.
Your work shouldn’t be taken advantage of.
But for those who want to do something different, go for it.
There are plenty of us on this side of the table that can help. And please reach out if you need a lending hand during your new career journey.
Inspiration comes in all crazy forms.
Mine came from Mrs. King.
She will always be my favorite teacher, kindergarten through my Bachelors. She inspired me.
🍎 I’d like to do the same for you wonderful teachers out there. It’s my turn to give back (I mean, it’s the least I can do to make up for that old 10-year-old aspiring comedian always in the principal’s office — sorry mom and dad!).
