Friday, August 05, 2005 


Anyone who knows me knows that I always have something to say. I've always got something on my mind, some cool new fact I just found out, some news I like to discuss, something, anything.

Yet today as I think of my blog, I am drawing a blank - I am 17 days away from my first day at school, still miles from being ready to actually stand in front of a classroom and teach, convey knowledge, look like I know something, not to trip over my own feet or my cordless laptop...

I've been thinking a lot about what it will be like to get to know - fairly well since I'll be spending 5 hours per week with them - a bunch of 9th graders. All girls. 100 of them in total. 14 and 15 years old. Those were not easy years when I was growing up. But I made it and so will they. Will I make it as a teacher to those teens? Both time and this blog will tell. Through my eyes and keyboard.

And in the meantime, I'm still stuck in that marathon...

About me

  • I'm Lolita
  • From Canada
  • Challenges... don't we all love a good challenge? University, married life, a mortgage, kids, keeping my sanity while we cruise through life at 100 MPH... why not try my hand at teaching for a year. After all, a school year is only 180 days - anyone should be able to survive 180 days, right? Well, I'm about to find out - follow my journey and enjoy my trials and tribulations as I embark in this 180 day rollercoaster ride of teenage hormones and drama, spiked with discipline, homework, exams and surprises I'm sure...
