As part of their final assignments, I asked each of my students to take a photo that captures what it means to be a teenager in 2018 (I hope to share these somehow). So I decided to do a similar thing – to take a photo that captures how I am feeling as a teacher as we start 2018.
This is the photo I took – I used the double exposure feature on my camera to do it. The more I look at it, the more elements I find that reflect my feelings. And although I normally don’t look as troubled as I do in this photo (at least I don’t think I do), it accurately expresses how I feel about where we currently are.
