My absolute favorite thing about being a teacher is seeing visible progress in my students. It is so rewarding to be able to compare a student’s current piece of work with a past piece of work and see how much they have improved.
It’s been a chilly week in England; the rain was expected, but I’m more surprised by the fact that it keeps hailing. Over the winter, I coped with the cold by thinking of our 110-degree stay in Las Vegas over the summer. And now, as my teeth chatter during my wanders around Birmingham, I can’t help thinking about a very warm day that I had last month during my stay in Florida.
