Hello, Friends! I hope your February has been wonderful so far. I cannot believe that I’m almost halfway done with my first year of teaching already. It’s been such a rewarding experience. I have to say that I was a little anxious about teaching Shakespeare (okay…a lot a bit stressed about it), but it’s been a blast. My students are truly understanding what they’re reading without having to rely on Sparknotes or other online summaries. We do a lot of acting out scenes in class, and sometimes, I make them wear funny hats and flower crowns.
