From June to December

It’s sort of funny to read my summer blogs and realize how nervous/excited I was about teaching, how I dissected my video performance, the general fluttering of butterflies in my tummy. It appears that I had built the profession up in my mind as some great, frightening, highly complicated performance in front of an implacable audience that was surely going to devour me with their razor sharp teeth. This is all funny to me now because, four and a half months later, teaching Spanish One is my daily routine. Although the lessons and assignments change from day to day in content and design, and although someone is always dropping a surprise at my feet, there is a strange sense now of consistency, normalness, and comfort. Perhaps part of what I failed to recognize this summer was how much I would come to find my kids to be just that: kids - funny, unpredictable, sometimes mean, sometimes compassionate, and almost always pretty damned smart when you least expect it.
