M.M. Inspiration

I think nearly all of the Memoir Mondays participants are teachers. Hence, the reason my weekly charges are just for inspiration in case you need help coming up with an idea.

I was sitting at my computer last night and a photo of my second religious school class popped up on the screen. The photo was taken in 1998 when I taught fourth grade Judaic Studies as a college student in Washington, DC. These kids were nine and ten in 1998, which means they’re college-age now!!! Wow!!!

So, for this Monday’s Memoir Monday, something you might want to consider is how an early teaching experience helped to shape you as a teacher or as a person.

And remember… it’s just a charge. Feel free to write about anything this-coming Monday!
