The Waiting Self
Santini, Laurel
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v35 n2 p126-132 Dec 2007
The author works as a developmental writing instructor and tutor at a community college. She loves to write, to carve out some time to do what she spends her days teaching others to do. The author states that her becoming a teacher has made her life less her own. For her, teacher is all-absorbing. Yet, her life is not depleted by teaching; rather, it is absorbed by teaching and the conflict that absorption creates. In this article, the author explores the conflict between teaching writing and her own writing practice.
