I love to work with and along side people who also love to work. Right now working with students is a gift. They love to read and write and converse. They are an inspiration each day that they show up to try everything I ask of them, no matter how hard or scary it feels. I wish the other teachers on either side of me also wanted to work. What is happening in the world is affecting people in all kinds of ways and I am working hard at being understanding of where they are at. The struggle is real. And so is the lonliness of doing what's right by myself.
