I’m still here, still teaching. I have 20,330 spam comments (which I can’t figure out how to mass-delete) and one week left of blissful Winter Break.
I’m back to teaching middle school now; I’m also getting my graduate degree while teaching full-time. This year has been a blur of personal and professional growth.
But more than anything, I’m still here. Six years in. To the random man on Facebook who mansplained teaching to me in 2012, saying, “You think your kids will be grateful you’re there for two years – but they won’t”…
I’m still here.
