In the short five weeks that I have been at Mifflinburg Area High School, I have been thrown my fair share of curveballs. Not only did I begin teaching my third day there, but I also picked up four additional classes within the first three weeks. Many of the units that I had planned had to be majorly overhauled and I found out that I would be picking up some additional units later on. Throw in some schedule changes and snow days, and you have a recipe for panic… and that’s what I did!

While these changes have caused a bit of chaos thus far and
the idealistic picture in my mind has faded, I believe that embracing these
changes is helping me find my feet as an educator. I am being stretched (far)
from my comfort zone, but this has prepared me for the realities that a teacher
faces on a daily basis… and for that I am thankful!
