Fondest Memory of Teaching:
After nearly 18 years, it’s very difficult to isolate a single memory as “the fondest.” Every day is a new adventure, and every year I have to say goodbye to students I have known for many years. So what makes teaching here at Donegal worthwhile? Simply being able to celebrate the accomplishments of students. A simple note in my mailbox, thanking me for writing a letter of recommendation. You know your heartstrings will be tugged when the personal note begins with "It's been a long ride, ..." Certainly the longevity of the multi-year relationship adds to a deeper personal connection, and often gifted kids would, quite frankly, rather hang out and talk to teachers and other adults, than their same-age peers, simply because of their level of intellect or diverse, often more adult, interests. It's darned easy to fall in love with anyone that lifts you up with amazing and inspiring affirmations on a daily basis, and the gifted and talented kids of Donegal are the best at offering warm fuzzies to harried teachers.
What Makes DHS such a great place to teach:
The obvious answer is the people. So I’ll go with the next best thing: Putting the FUN in the FUNdamentals of education. I wrote about this in my blog a few years ago, and I’m excited every year to see the ultrasociality (yes, it’s a real word – ask my Themes in Literature classes…) that grows from the traditions of Spirit Week.
