2017 Day-By-Day

Day 57

It’s been a full day. Today was Day One of the Hadassah Leadership Fellows advocacy seminar and we kicked it off with a visit to the Newseum, which is fabulous if you’ve never been. I loved every minute of it and will definitely be visiting again when I’m back in town in April and June. Going through the exhibits was fascinating and all I could keep thinking was how I could incorporate what I saw in my lessons. Now if that isn’t a sign I’m destined to be in education, I don’t know what is.

The thing is, I don’t want to teach full time or in a formal setting. I’m all about looking at the information that needs to be taught and how I can do it in a fun and memorable way. If I’m bored teaching, then I know my kids will be bored and that’s not what I want to be remembered for. I want to be the teacher who taught you how to make lemon volcanoes while explaining that we have all the tools we need to make the world a better place through tikkun olam, we just have to actively put together the pieces. That’s pretty good for someone who swore up and down that she would never ever teach.
