I have been remiss in updating here, but for a very good reason: I love what I'm doing.
Honestly. That's the reason.
It's been four consecutive terms since I've written anything in this blog, and I feel that I have grown so much as an instructor in the interim. I have been extremely fortunate to have the support of a great teaching staff, to have access to engaging materials and curricula, and to have had an active and engaging line-up of students over the last year. I have entered 2012 -- my second full year of ESL instruction -- with a lot of tough lessons learned, experiences gained, and memories made. I enjoy going into work in the morning for the very real reason that I enjoy teaching, and that I have ended up getting back so much more from my students than I initially thought I might.
Giving your life and heart to something means sacrificing other things. And if a blog has to get a little dusty because of it, then I'm okay with that.
Now, where did I put those light bulbs?
