Brings Back Memories

I found out about a new blog by a high-school religion teacher, and I’m quite impressed.
It brought back memories of my first year teaching. I’m certified to teach Spanish and English, but I was hired to teach Spanish and Theology! AAACK! My only Theology qualification is that I’m a practicing Catholic. NOT enough, but it was enough for a start, and enough to get me hired.
I had Freshman Spanish and Sophomore Theology: Catholic Morality.
What WERE they thinking? That is not where you dump the clueless but idealistic first-year teacher!
“Anonymous Teacher Person” seems to have it more together than I did at that point and I’m enjoying reading about what she’s accomplishing with her students.
Hat tip to Amy Welborn for the link to this blog.

  1. Gosh, it brought back memories of those long past days of beginning teaching. Each year brings its challenges but nothing is quite so nostalgic as that first year.
