An Update About Me:
As I reread my About page, I realized I didn’t actually tell you about ME, but what I do. This is a common thing that people do and it’s exactly the frustration that Jack Nicholson had with Adam Sandler in Anger Management when he told Adam to tell the group about HIM.
Who am I? It’s a hard question to answer when you really think about the question. I already told you my career, which describes a little about me. I could give you a list of adjectives, which would tell you about my personality. But who am I really? Well, that’s up to you to infer based on my writing, and if you’ve been reading I’m sure you will figure out who I am.
So: read on, share, comment, and enjoy!
I am a NYC Public School teacher, living in Manhattan and teaching in Harlem. I have been teaching at my current school for 7 years. I moved here in August of 2006, a life changing event I must say. At first I wondered what I got myself into, but then quickly realized all NYC teachers think the same thing!
The city has opened my eyes in many ways. Before moving here I was far too sheltered and naive about the world. Not to say that I have lost my positive outlook or have become jaded because I haven’t; I just see things for what they really are and accept the beauty as well as the challenges that come with living in this great city.
