There’s at least one moment every few days when I think to myself: “Teaching really is the best career in the world.” Sometimes this thought is spurred on when a student finally understands a concept.
Other days it’s activated by the zing of a vibrant classroom discussion. Sometimes it comes from the intellectual buzz of making a tough text like Shakespeare accessible. But, in the case of this week… my teacher euphoria came from our DOUBLE SNOW DAY off from school!
Before diving into grading and planning today (yes, we still work during days off, but it’s a lot cozier in PJs), I couldn’t resist taking a walk around the neighborhood to capture the beauty of icy Boston. Come walk with me and check it out! Click each thumbnail to enlarge the photo.
