There’s really no reason to try to remake a good thing. I’ve decided to come back to my old standby, the ole “Hey Misster” blog and continue sharing my adventures in teaching here. So in case you were wondering what happened to me— for two years I have been living, learning, and teaching in New York City. In May I graduated from Teachers College, Columbia University with a masters degree in teaching English to speakers of other languages and in a mere month I will start my first teaching job in the United States at an international school in Brooklyn, NYC.
Over the course of two years the adventures were plenty, but the free time was short, hence the whole “falling off the writing a blog wagon”. As I like to say, I dated graduated school for two years and it was the longest and the most abusive relationship I have ever been in. That being said, I learned a ton, worked with some incredible people, and thanks to these experiences, I’ll be working as an English as a second language history teacher at my top choice school this fall.
As for current life—This summer I’ve been living on the west coast in Los Angeles where I’ve been the wellness coordinator for an academic camp on the campus of UCLA. While here I’ve dealt with and served as fill-in mom for students (and staff members) dealing with ailments that have ranged from viral epidemics overtaking our dorms, ear infections, burst cysts, appendicitis scares, gall bladder problems, staph infections—the list goes on and on. Suffice it to say, there is little that surprises me these days when it comes to the ailments and concerns of teenagers.
So here’s to the next chapter. Lets hope it’s more comedy than tragedy.
