Dear younger Me,
This next year, you are going to face a lot of challenges due to covid and all that it will throw your way and your students' way. Not only will you not be able to attend your classes at the Brock campus (my entire last year of school ever was virtual), but the burnout you will feel throughout the year will be like none other. You will have days where there is seemingly not much work to get done, but even that feels like a huge mountain to climb. However, despite all of this, you will have one of the best years of your life ever. You are about to meet some of the best kids you could ever imagine. I know that sounds cliche or corny but honestly, these kids will test your patience and make you question if you are in the right profession, but the connections and joy you will get from them will be enough to solidify to you that teaching is without a doubt the number 1 job in the world. This next year will be life changing in that you are about to start your journey into true adulthood and embrace your passion fully with some truly amazing humans.
