Life has been moving pretty quickly – the academic year is coming to a close. My desk went from an immaculately clean surface to a gargantuan pile of books and papers that at one point I’m pretty sure swallowed up all my working pens. It’s been hectic, to say the least. I’ve been teaching, doing afterschool programs, prepping the kids for SATs, and just trying to wrap my head around this thing called real life.
And then one morning I looked through some sample AP tests, and realized that if for some reason my 8th graders were to take one of them, they would get a qualifying score for college credit – and I thought to myself (while eyeing the aforementioned pile) “Hey, I’m sorta kinda doing a good job.”
And that was a good day. Now back to clearing the pile.
