More updates coming soon, I promise. However, I have learned something about being a teacher: while I thought that lawyers and consultants and their ilk work tough hours, I had failed to consider the fact that for a teacher the clock is irrelevant. Sure, you can go home, but those papers you have to grade, those tests you have to make, those lessons you have to plan - they do not cease to exist between the hours of 8:00 and 5:00. This is good work experience, but damn. Now excuse me while I get back to planning a lesson involving a town of a my own design and giving directions. Yes, students will need to learn how to direct me from the Taco and Pizza Restaurant to the Hospital.
