Secret pleasures

English teachers have simple, secret pleasures in the classroom.

There is elegance in an idiom phrased naturally.

There is music in a grammatical structure executed to the T.

There is power in an articulate expression.

There is relief in a question elicited confidently.

And when there is humour, teaching is indeed a good career.
