I haven’t posted in a while, and life has changed in a million ways.
Since the last time…
- I took an amazing trip to Israel with my brother
- And then extended it to a few days in New York
- I started teaching (woah what????)
Transitioning from my very lax college schedule to grown up life has been interesting. The work is long and hard, but so so worth it.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of the job is the things the kids say… they’re quite the little comedians.
One class was reading a book on civil rights. The question was “Do you think civil rights is still an issue?” The answer from a kid – “No, because Trump is still here.”
I easily pass for Hispanic. One of my students asked me “Mrs. M, do you speak Spanish?” I told her no. She looked very surprised. A minute later… she hesitantly asked “So… what ARE you?” I asked her what she is. Her answer? A proud American.
It’s such an amazing experience to teach. I’m extremely excited for the fall to come, to be able to have a classroom and the months in the year to get to know these kids, and hopefully, impact them in one way or another.
So that’s life lately…
