Statement of Teaching Philosophy

By Keith Leonard

My students want certainty. They want it

so badly. They respect science and have memorized

complex formulas. I don't know

how to tell my students their parents

are still just as scared. The bullies get bigger

and vaguer and you cannot punch a cloud.

I have eulogies for all my loved ones prepared,

but cannot include this fact in my lesson plans.

The best teacher I ever had told me to meet him

at the basketball court. We played pick-up for hours.

By the end, I lay panting on the hardwood

and couldn't so much as stand.

He told me to describe the pain in my chest,

I tried. I couldn't find the words. Not exactly.

Listen, he said, that's where language ends.

I’ve locked myself out of my digital life

This is the stuff of nightmares. I'll have to think hard about how I can take steps to overcome the worst case scenario. Definitely going to put some steps in place in case something like this ever happens to me.
