Teaching isn’t always glamorous. I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent at the copy machine over the past 20 years. The rhythmic workings of the copy machine lull me into a mindless trance that I sometimes refer to as “the only Me time I have on this job.” While I’m running this big job(a rather environmental disaster, really) I’m excited about the adventure the 8th grade class is about to begin with the Cottonwood Gulch and the students in wilderness initiative. Our first expedition into the New Mexico wilderness is four weeks from today! Info packets are going home with kids tomorrow!
