Teaching is a special job. It is independent. It is often inspiring. It brings great responsibility. But it is also special in that despite the fact that teachers are surrounded by people, it is quite a lonely job.

When you are working in lonely job like this you sometimes need other people's perspective. Maybe something just doesn't feel right. Or perhaps you want to straighten out a persistent problem.
