It's been over 10 years since I entered high school. It seems odd to put it in that light. I was a shy teenager, and am still a close-to-the-chest adult. But, give me a topic that I have an opinion about, and I can talk your ear off.
I see bits of my teenage self in my students. The ones who are passionately interested in a particular subject. The ones who meticulously finish their work, but still have a bad day now and then. They are the ones that remind me every day of the joys of teaching, and the blessing it is to work in a Catholic school.
I'm discerning a job change right now. I love my students, my co-workers, my boss, but I have a little one at home, and driving nearly an hour to work takes its toll. If you would pray for me, I would appreciate it.
St. John Bosco is the patron saint of my homeroom-- each of the 8 homerooms has one. I will be praying for guidance from him as well as my patron saint, St. Margaret Mary Alacoque. I would love it if you joined me.
Thank you & God Bless!
