Equal Opportunity To Get Eaten By a Bear

Last night we were at a party in the middle of the woods. The boys and I were waiting for Shawn to say goodbye, and Charlie wanted to go back up to the house.

Me ( COMPLETELY kidding) Who is going to protect me if you leave me here in the woods?
Charlie: Mom, you are a girl. You can take care of yourself.

At least I am raising a feminist.

Deep Thoughts

"Teenagers- They are experts in circular logic about insignificant things."

I may get t-shirts made.

Everyone Relax, I Didn't Actually Win

To say that the first years of teaching were challenging for me, would be the understatement of the century. However, I am at the end of year three now I finally feel like I have a handle on it. The learning curve has become slightly less steep.

The other day, I received an email from my principal that let me know I had been nominated for Teacher of The Year at my school. I was thrilled. I was especially thrilled because the nominations come from coworkers, so it means more.

I love teaching. I really, really love it. And because I love it so much I want to be good at it. It was nice to get some validation of that I am on the right track.

A very well deserving teacher ended up getting the award, but I still kinda feel like I won.
