The Professor

Recently, a blogging friend of mine (ellie fritz) did a beautiful post on the weight of words and why words should mean something. It got me thinking~ It’s super important for people to stick together and support and encourage each other. I think there’s a lot of value in writers helping writers and INFJs helping INFJs everyone, as well as just going around and being an encouragement to others.

In her blog post, called ‘the shape of words’, she linked to a couple blogs/ people that have encouraged her, and I was on that list! This warmed my heart and filled my soul. She called me ‘the professor’, and I got to thinking about what that word means.

pro·fes·sor

/prəˈfesər/
noun
noun: professor; plural noun: professors; noun: full professor; plural noun: full professors
  1. 1.
    a teacher of the highest rank in a college or university.
    synonyms: prof, tenured faculty member, dean, full/assistant/associate professor, instructor, lecturer, doctor, scholar, academic

    “a number of our professors were Rhodes scholars”
  2. 2.
    a person who affirms a faith in or allegiance to something.
    “the professors of true religion”

 

I want to be a professor in both of those ways. I adore teaching- I’ve thought about doing teaching sessions through FB or this blog. (Let me know if you’re at all interested in that)

I also want to be a professor of the things in which I believe: Christianity, morality, good writing, kindness, and good food.

(Not to mention that both Tolkien and Lewis were known as ‘the Professor’)

I’m so delighted to be called ‘the professor’. Is there a title by which you’d like to be known?
