swim, chem, baseball, I talk with my hands
You can’t imagine how excited get every year to start the school year. One of the unique joys of being a teacher is that I get to experience renewal every time I teach a course. It is the promise of new possibilities and meeting new people that gets me pumped every time. Yes, teachers are human too, and we have anxiety and fear and stress and, well, all of the emotions you have as a student. Let’s use this to our advantage – this common emotion – as a connection that helps us move ahead in this (possibly) challenging endeavor.
I deeply enjoyed getting to know the Class of 2019 on retreat this week. You are bold, honest, hilarious, smart and real in every way. I can’t wait to get started on the first day!
