Wow, this fall has been, shall we say, “busy?” Yeah, Busy would be an understatement. Every single weekend I have had something going on. Don’t get me wrong, but I have had a lot of incredible opportunities this fall, ranging from assisting in directing our school’s drill team:
Or shooting photos at a family reunion:
It seems like things at school have been quite different this year. Overall, my students are great, and really respectful and nice; but I can’t quite put my finger on what exactly is different. Demands have increased significantly, and half of our planning time was taken away due to budget concerns, but I am lucky to still have a job. I can remember back to four years ago when all I wanted was a chance to be in the classroom, so I remind myself that I should be so thankful that I have the opportunity that I do have to interact with these amazing teenagers every day.
Before too long, the year of 2011 will be over, but not before a few more photo shoots and more fun with my family and friends. I hope your fall is going well this year and that you enjoy every minute of it.
