What am I to my students?

Am I a teacher? The sage on the stage?

Certainly not.

Am I a mentor? The guide on the side.

Perhaps.

Am I an advisor? The meddler in the middle?

At times.

What am I to my students?

I’m a sherpa.

I do the heavy lifting at the beginning of the climb.

I lead. I guide. I inform. I steer.

And then I let go.

What am I to my students?

I hope anything they need me to be.

  1. Very nice. As a sherpa perhaps you are all the things before. I like the idea of sherpa also because my idea of them is they are in indispensable but also very humble.
