I cannot believe that I am saying this. . .but I just completed my sophomore year of college.
Looking back on the past year, I reflect on all of the opportunities, accomplishments, and experiences that I am so proud of.
However, it is also important to recognize the low points, the weeks of little to no motivation and burnout along with the highlights. So, as much as I will miss my professors, practicum experience, internship, etc., I am very excited and ready for the summer!
And, there is so much that I am looking forward to over the next few months!

Happy teacher appreciation week!
Thank you, teachers and educators, for everything you are doing for your students and your community. I appreciate you. I respect you. You are valued.
Usually, teacher appreciation week involves schools handing out coffee gift cards, hanging up a sign that says, "Thank you, teachers!" and giving them a brief pat on the back. However, these gestures are not what teachers need during this week of recognition.
So, how can you support, respect, and appreciate teachers?
I encourage you to go beyond giving small gifts or "thank you" cards this week. Appreciation and respect for teachers should be reflected in professional pay and by listening to their concerns and thoughts within administration. Also, let's appreciate, respect, and support teachers all year!
So, how will you support teachers this week and in the future? Leave me a comment!
