So… I don’t have time for a real update… or anything for that matter, but my school has gone through significant changes recently.
I am a middle school science teacher again.
I had to say goodbye to the high schoolers that I was so excited to teach for the 2nd year in a row. And say goodbye to the hope and excitement of really pushing them to grow in biology and chemistry. It isn’t easy to let kids go into the world when you thought you had at least the rest of the year to push them and care about them…. and worry about them.
Several amazing teachers lost their jobs… TFA and non-TFA.
There is something really wrong with a system where so many schools in a city shut down in the middle of a year.
