Today’s topic in the Blog Everyday in May challenge (which, side note, I’m not doing a great job at keeping up with) is sharing a piece of advice with others.
Here it is:
- I am a first generation college graduate. I spent the last two years (OK, out of five) spending most Friday and Saturday nights in the library improving my GPA, writing sample lesson plans and working 2-3 campus jobs at a time. It was hard, especially when I missed social events as an almost graduated senior to do school work (see: missing my first sorority formal as an alumna to write a history paper).
- I work a fulfilling but highly demanding job. My heart and soul go into my work and sometimes it tanks, but most times it goes well. If I gave up the first time a lesson went poorly, I would have stopped a long time ago. This piece of advice is one that I want to share with my students all.the.time.
- My hobby is distance running. Enough said.
What piece of advice is your favorite?
PS: Detox? Not going super great. More on that to come later.
