I never realized what a big deal that was. How amazing it is to find someone who wants to hear about all the things that go on in your head.

If I Knew Then: A Letter to Me on My First Day Teaching

In honor of teacher appreciation week, SoulPancake and Edutopia asked teachers to write a letter to themselves on their first day teaching.

This really resonated with me as I watched it on my lunch break during the first day of our high-stakes standardized testing…after being at school until 10 pm the night before. 

I’m still in my first year (though I’m nearing the home stretch!) and I feel like I could already write a novel to the person I was just nine months ago.

To all of my teacher friends here on #Education, I appreciate you for all that you do. I appreciate you always, but today I shout it out for all to hear - you matter, you are making a difference in your students’ lives, and you are doing great things. 

Never forget that.

It will be tough. But it will be worth it.

If you are feeling down, do what you need to do to turn those feelings around.

school is NOT for fools

Why did I not create a four-year plan?!? I could be student teaching right now but noooooo. I wanted to mess around in school, party, and focus on softball.



Blog me this

Why haven’t I used this blog to truly benefit myself? Tumblr in my younger days meant “an idealistic hipster society where all the girls are perfectly tiny and all the boys dress like they are from England”. Now, it’s just an ordinary blog to me. Still it will include all my original idea of it, but now it will be more functional for me.
