I left home to move to Colorado a year ago today. I’m not going to even attempt to write one of those reflective posts on the last year because I’m not sure that it would do me any good, but I will say it has been one hell of a year.
On another note, the school year ended last Thursday (year one is over!) and I am now living in Phoenix for six weeks, working at Institute for Teach For America. I am excited about reliving the Institute experience, but now as staff. Working with some fabulous people that I think will be amazing mentors for the new 2012 corps members and, selfishly, will help me to become a better teacher for next year.
If you haven’t bought John Mayer’s new album ‘Born and Raised’ go do it RIGHT NOW. It’s incredible.
