The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.” (Into The Wild)
I am sorry for the delayed posts. A lot has been going on these past few months which hasn’t afforded me time to blog as often as I would like. With that, I am excited to announce the next journey in my career. After six years teaching English at my present high school, I will not be returning past this school year. I have been offered (and accepted) an opportunity to be the Director of Instructional Technology and Staff Development for another school district. It saddens me to be leaving my students, some of which I have formed a “Freedom Writers” relationship with as I have had them for three to four years. It is always difficult to move on and accept change, but it is invigorating to try new things amidst the uncertain.
