It’s beeeeen One Week!

So I’ve decided to try and commit to a weekly reflection, posted here, about the week/my job in general/education in general/TFA haps in my region.  The wandering of a slightly crazed elementary school Spanish teacher This week was our first week back at the job (we had two weeks off instead of the usual one).…

Teaching in 2012: Lots of thoughts

I think my resolution this year is to live intentionally. I want to erase those moments of cool irony from my life–I think it takes a lot of courage to announce your passion for the world, to embrace it and its wonder. It is easier and safer to be cynical and jaded. But if more…

It hasn’t been all that long since I’ve updated, but I am enthusiastically avoiding reading and organizing my thesis (though I AM excited that it recently was accepted into the Nation Conference of Undergraduate Research!), and I thought it would be nice to update the larger world out there on the post-acceptance process.  There’s SO…
