What I Learned

The school year is coming to an end. This also marked the end of my first year as an instructor. A few years ago, I’d never thought I would be a teacher of any kind (did some tutoring in college, hated it), so I’m pleasantly surprised that I didn’t crash and burn at the end of this year. I guess it was a learning process for me as much as it was for the students. I’ve learned a lot, but you know what the number one thing is? Take care of your throat. You wouldn’t think it’s that significant, but I’ve had a lot of sore throat last year just from talking for three hours straight in class. Now I carry a little jar of honeyed limes in my bag at all time. They work wonders.

Anyway, it’s the last week of work before summer vacation – all the finals are marked, the grades turned in, and I just had some mopping up to do, so I opted for something easy and summery (which I totally copied from Fran.) At the end of the day, I just needed untuck the tunic and switch shoes, and voilà – a more casual look.

    Congratulations on completing your first year as an instructor! Teaching really is such a challenging job. I’ve never had a honeyed lime, but they sound totally delicious. That phone necklace is so adorable!

    By the way, I’m running my very first giveaway on my blog this week, and I’d love for you to check it out 🙂


  2. I can totally understand the sore throat issue. When I take back to back meetings my throat always hurts after.
