Of all the cabbies in NYC…

She pulled her cab up to the cue and jumped out to grab my bags. I told her where I was going and off we went. She drove. I rode in cabs in NYCdelightful silence.

As we got closer to the city, I decided to find out a little about this young lady who was aptly navigating the city’s traffic on my behalf. I had never been in a cab with a female driver before. My curiosity got the best of me.

As I inquired I discovered that my driver was in school. She had been driving a cab for two years because she could set her work schedule around her school schedule. She had already received her associate’s degree and was currently working on  her bachelors.

Guess what, she was studying to be a TEACHER. Of course she was! Fate would bring me to this cab.

We had quite a nice conversation the rest of the way. We shared perspectives on our profession. It was refreshing to hear from the newby, drink in the idealism, and feel the energy of a life of teaching yet to begin.

Everywhere you go there’s a teacher. Open the door. Start a conversation. Drink in the beauty of those who are passionate about reaching children! There really is nothing better than to hear the future.
