This entire year flew by that I never even updated this blog. Well, after reading my old posts I cannot even believe I came back to Kansas City to teach at the same school in the same grade.
I. Loved. almost. Every. Day. This. Year.
In three weeks school will be over and I will return home. Would you believe it if I told you my kids make me cry, but not because of their behavior, but because I will miss them?
There is so much more to be said about my thoughts and opinions on Teach For America and urban education, which I will share for new corps members, but for tonight, I reflect on my experience.
These past two years were like a roller coaster that I’ve never been on before. I’m talking scarier than the scariest roller coaster at Cedar Point. So many highs, and even more lows. However, these past two years I gained great, beautiful friends, found independence, learned the truth about persevering and impacted my community that I have grown to love.
I am blessed to have had the opportunity to challenge myself while challenging my students.
