Wear Your Passion

Every day, I am thankful that I’m back in the classroom full-time.

My high school students shock me, bewilder me, anger me, humble me, humor me, teach me …. every single day.  Lately, they even seem to like me. A bonus, indeed!

Above my desk at home, I have a small poster about Life (itself, not the magazine). And at the end it says, Life is Short. Live your Dream. AND WEAR YOUR PASSION.

I can say, without a shadow of doubt, that I DO wear my passion every day. It’s a tough job, negotiating the often turbulent waters of teenage land, but it’s a job I relish, and am so thankful to have.  Can’t imagine doing anything else. And really, I don’t have to. I already left. Tried other things. And returned.

This is my Happy Place.  Even on the toughest days.

How funny it looks… a blank canvas on my first day back, September 2011.
I knew then that something BIG was about to happen. Paradigm shift.
