Like a farmer, I plant and I (sometimes) reap. Farmers deal with uncontrollable factors, namely weather, and teachers have lots beyond their control. The strongest parallel to me is that just like farming the results take time and sometimes are never seen. We live for the day when we see the fruits of our labor; however, when we don't, we need to be at peace if we have done everything humanly possible. And lastly, like a farmer, if we have a bad season, we pick ourselves up and sow again next season, but never lose hope.
