Over the years, there have been kids who have changed me, moved, me, and made me laugh. There have been others who made me question my sanity, my career choice, and my ability to make it through the day without teaching them some vocabulary words that weren't in their workbooks.
Right now, I've hit a sweet spot; I'm teaching what I love to kids--and adults---who want to learn it. I work from home, plan my own hours, and set my own curriculum. It's exhilarating and I love it in a way that I didn't think possible.
