It’s December 8th, and in less than two weeks, we will be waking up to the day with the shortest number of daylight hours. What I often forget is how that coincides with a time of the year when we often have the longest to-do lists.
Blogging about the teaching I see and the teaching I get to do really helps me…..and I’ve set it aside over and over again in the last eighteen months…thinking I would get to it. And I haven’t.
But I need it. And I miss it.
So although the days are short, and the lists are long, I’m going to try to post…..even if it’s short.
So, here is what I’ve been up to: The Short Version.
In mid-October I began a substitute position at an independent school in Austin, Texas. I’m teaching K-5 Spanish with amazing colleagues who use Comprehensible Input-based teaching. I’ve been given the honor of covering for a maternity leave, and I do mean honor.
I love it….I truly do. The beauty and sometimes brutal honesty of kids this age reminds me every single day what a priviledge, and a responsiblitiy, our job is.
I’ll be here until mid-February….and I’ll keep you posted. But right now I’d better get some sleep. I need all of the energy I can get!!
