Today I start teaching a full schedule of courses, five, and it is the beginning of my second year teaching. I am bubbling with excitement as I say hello to colleagues, copy my handouts and prepare to walk into my first class. The intention I have set for myself this quarter is to be calm and assertive with the goal of guiding students in reaching their fullest potential. Also, to create a Community of Practice in my classes since my students are in the final quarters of their program. Namaste.
