The most wonderful and daunting thing about teaching is that no day is the same. Adventures, challenges, heartaches, and successes define this career. I have always known I was meant to teach. Teaching is my calling. On this 13th year of my journey, I’ll chronicle with honesty, elation, and frustration what I’m teaching write now in my high school English class.
Besides teaching three sections of 11th graders in my AICE English Language class, I also have the honor and privilege of serving as English Department Chair and as a Teacher Leader (think coach/mentor/support) at my school. I’ll write about those roles, too.
