Teaching is the profession that teaches all the other professions. ~ Author Unknown

My goal is to reveal one teacher's humble journey of self-reflection, critical analysis, and endless questioning about my craft of teaching and learning alongside my middle school students.

This is what makes it worth it....

In the middle of a very chaotic week at school, I received an email from a former student last night that put everything in perspective. I had the privilege of teaching this student for two years. Even with all the hardship, hard work, and lack of positive feedback teachers receive on a daily basis, emails like this make it all worth it:

Hi Mrs. L,

I just wanted to inform you that I have been accepted as a member of the 2010-2011 BP Fashion Board! Thank you so much for your wonderful letter of recommendation! You are so thoughtful and I am so happy to have a great resource and amazing teacher like you to help me with these very important tasks.
I will come to visit very soon! Have a great rest of the year!
All My Love,

Your former student
P.S – English has been my highest grade the whole year!
