First Year Teaching Fellow

The residency year was really tough. I’d see about 5 minutes of daylight because there was so much work. But from that, I learned very good time management. There are days you think you can’t do it, but at the end of the day, you don’t want to be doing anything else.

I worked in a classroom last year with a boy named Alejandro. He didn’t know a lot of English and he was pretty discouraged. He grew a liking to working with and really came out of his shell. Now he’s a shining star– very smart, very humble.

I really like where I am right now. I didn’t think it was possible to like teaching this much. This is my purpose and this is what I want to do right now.
