Today was my first time in my new classroom. It’s kind of insane when I stop and think about it. Six months ago I was feeling antsy, unfulfilled, and realized that I was almost finished with graduate school and still had no real direction. Then, two and a half months ago I moved half-way across the country, and today I’m just over a week away from my first day teaching 8th grade in one of Philadelphia’s more challenging middle schools. Things have changed more quickly than I expected, but, oh-me-oh-my, I’m ready. I think.
