Wow, I made it through one semester!
I feel grateful for the experiences that I’ve had so far. There are so many things I’ve learned: how hard it is to get students to do homework, how much of an emotional toll teaching takes on you, how resilient young people are to adversity, how difficult it is to stay positive, how complicated the whole educational system is, etc. etc. etc. I could go on and on, I think.
I wish there was a bit more time to process my thoughts. I’m turning in grades one minute and preparing for the new semester the next. Ack!!! New classes!!!
