Musings by a Non-"Born Teacher"
Oswald, Lynda J.
Journal of Legal Studies Education, v28 n1 p143-148 Win-Spr 2011
In this article, the author reflects on her continual journal in regard to improving her teaching skills. She opines that this journey is a story that could resonate with other colleagues to whom teaching is also critically important but to whom it does not come naturally. She describes lessons she learned in her early years of teaching, and she stresses that, while educators cannot all be "born teachers," those who care about the teaching mission can, with effort and dedication, be successful teachers who make a difference in the education and the lives of students.
