I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

All about that faith

I know that from time to time I complain about student behavior, but when it boils down to it, how cool is it that I get to spend time learning and teaching about the Catholic faith for MY JOB?!?!? (I think the Language Arts piece tends to stress me out a little, but that's okay.)

I am so grateful to learn and dig deeper every single day. From watching classic films (e.g. "The Song of Bernadette" or "The Robe") to having students get excited about sharing videos for prayer to having to do a little research to prepare about Church history - I love it.

And for some kids, I know it's making a difference now. For others, maybe they'll look back on some of the things we did and it might make a difference then. Who knows? We gotta keep "fighting the good fight," people.

Sorry for my brevity. Have a good night, y'all.
