Run. Teach. Eat. Repeat.

Talk Nerdy To Me   Personal Records   

Race Recaps

I run. I teach. I eat. I do some other stuff. Sometimes.

I'm a TA looking for a job teaching high school English and recently completed my first half marathon.

I like books, cooking, theater, hockey, and singing in the shower (or at church sometimes).

"I know the stuff, I just don’t understand the way he says the questions sometimes."

The first honest and open thing this student I work with has said to me since day one because he finally realizes I’m there to help him, not ruin his life. And we went through the whole test together- me re-phrasing the questions, him talking through his answer to me before writing it down. And at the end he told me to have a good day versus pretending I don’t exist.

My heart.

This is sweet.  My childhood reading, animated, but not by Disney.

This is from a Disney movie, though.

My students though

when i was a child i used to think teens were grown ups and when i was a teen i thought college students were grown ups and now that im a college student im just like what the hell is a grown up anymore

Now that I’m older than college age I’ve concluded that grown ups are a myth.

Yes.

post-procrastination replied to your photoset:I bought myself an “applied to a grad program”…

That mug is the bomb! I have the Shakespearean Insults one.

I have that one, too! I just need the Banned Books one and I’ll have the set!
