Sometimes I still feel a little “shocky” the way one feels after a death or accident. My life has changed so much in the past ten years going from part-time house wife and nursing assistant/unit secretary, to full time college student and then to high school English teacher. Some days I wonder how I made it, how I still make it. I’m not totally sure.
What I am sure of is the love and inspiration I get from my wonderful, patient husband Gil, my number one fan and daughter Alexis, and the rest of my family and friends who are always there to encourage. I thank God for their continued support.
The most recent change for me is my masters experience, which is not only extremely challenging, it is extremely inspiring. My choice of specialization: adolescent literature and technology to me was a necessity and as I collaborate with my colleagues and learn more, I realize the choice was one of dire necessity. Conveying the impact of our need for a changing educational system cannot be said in a few words. Change is here and we must embrace it, learn about it, and teach with it. I certainly hope to.
This I do for our future,
