I haven’t had (or made) the time to take new pictures and edit. I should start taking some first year teacher’s advice by picking a hobby…otherwise school will continue to take over my life. Entering the anticipation phase of teaching, I was very hopeful, excited, and enthusiastic. It was an amazing feeling–coming into teaching believing that I can change the world and inspire students. Little did I know the many obstacles I am facing. Teaching is not just about being strong and passionate in my content knowledge and planning engaging lessons. It’s about relating to students and also knowing when they are trying to push your limits. It is about finding a balance in the midst of all the paperwork, lesson plans, never-ending meetings, working in feedback from others while trying to find your own groove. And just when I thought organization would be easy, I find myself with countless stacks of papers and not knowing what types of systems would work to maintain good organization. These past few months teaching has clouded the countless things I am thankful for–
My dog, teddy
A warm place to sleep every night
Being a math teacher–a job that challenges me everyday
Coming home to a happy and excited dog
Been a while since my last post. Beautiful weather at Lake Michigan this past weekend ^_^
Felt like editing some pictures last night it’s been weird being away from my camera these past few weeks.
It’s so easy to get off track of posting pictures.
My favorite time of day. Gorgeous sunlight!
Powerful words to live by from a wonderful woman:
“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
― Mother Teresa
I will never get tired of taking pictures of flowers :D There is just something majestic about them.
Hope you enjoy!
Guess who got a remote for her camera?
I got it off of amazon for around 6 bucks. This is going to be a fun summer! Anyone care to share some self portrait ideas?? I kind of want to try some more conceptual photos but I am at a loss. Anything math related would be nice :D
