In this article, Abigail Erdmann reflects on her career as a classroom teacher. She shares her delight in discovering that middle age isn't, as she had once thought, a time of boredom or complacency. Instead, she finds it to be a time of growing vitality as her relationship to teaching deepens and changes.
