Summer semester

Summer Semester

Summer semester is well underway, and I am feeling great about my courses. They are both challenging in different ways, and I feel intellectually stimulated, which is always the goal!
My work as a teacher will be done for the year in two weeks, and all in all the year has been pretty good. I really struggled with my tenth graders, and there are a lot of things I wish I had done differently. However, these reflections make me look forward to next year and what I can do differently as an educator.
As I get closer to the end of my doctoral journey, I wonder if I’m ready to step away from the classroom. I’m sure I’ll miss the students and real contact with the classroom- but I also feel very strongly about educating new teachers and encouraging teachers to truly be the best they can be, even if the odds seem to be against them.
