Submissions Requested: What Metaphor Describes You As A Teacher?

What Metaphor Describes You As A Teacher? What do you gain when you think about yourself as a teacher in this way?
Metaphors organize, orient, and propel curiosity and inquiry. For example, what does it mean to be “drowning in money” or for “love to be a rose? Or what does it mean to describe a teacher as a travel guide or a chef? When a term or phrase is applied to something to which it is not literally applicable in order to suggest resemblance, metaphor is born. The suggestion that two unlike things are alike widens perception and provokes thought.
Teaching Theology and Religion invites essays of 3000 to 5000 words presenting your metaphor for teaching and for yourself as a teacher. There is no deadline on this call. All submissions will be peer-reviewed. [Details from Wabash Center].
