Day 11

video



Here I am at 6:30am on Day 11. The emotional high from the first week has dwindled. My sleep schedule is wonky and insufficient. I feel like I am constantly working and yet never quite where I need to be.

Teaching. Is. Exhausting.

But...

I still love coming to school everyday and I am still overjoyed to be working with such wonderful students. I am learning so much and having a blast!

Stay tuned for more video blogs. Auditions for Legally Blonde will be finished this week and we will begin rehearsals after Labor Day...then the REAL work begins!

Day 1

video


This is my first installment of a new series i'd like to do called: 2 minutes with a first year teacher. Doesn't that title just roll off the tongue like a sweet and buttery nectar?

Well thanks.

I teach at Oak Park High School and I am a first year Theatre teacher. Today was my "last first day" as a teacher...EVER!

Here are just a few of my thoughts for your viewing pleasure. I am now going to go collapse in on myself like a dying star. By that I mean lock myself in my office and keep planning like a beast.

Playtime's over...time to go to work! Do it for Johnny!
