For my Intro to Teaching course we were told to write a letter to a former teacher

mattwith2ts:

I realized that I had done something similar about my favorite high school teacher for my college applications. Needless to say, I found the original letter on my computer and it is one of the most pretentious things I have ever read. I am SOOOOOO glad I am not that person anymore.

This is one of the information sources for the Pre-Instute work. I received my reading today too!!!

VIDEO EXCERPT, Unnatural Causes - Episode 5 Why is your street address such a good predictor of your health? Increasingly, Southeast Asian immigrants like Gwai Boonkeut are moving into neglected urban neighborhoods where African Americans have long suffered, and now their health is being eroded too. What can be done to create a neighborhood that promotes rather than destroys health?

It’s our time to step up and lead.
We can turn things around. We can put our country back on track. We can make sure all kids have a shot at the American dream. Let’s start today.

Amen, sister!

I just finished Junior Fellows training today and am so excited for next quarter! In addition to taking Ethics in Teaching, composing my senior thesis, and rocking gospel choir, a partner and I will be facilitating discussions with freshman about some great works including, but not limited to, Gloria Anzaldua, Viktor Frankl, Sigmund Freud, Gandhi, and Malcolm X!

Next quarter will be demanding, but I’ll be energized and suited up!
