Most days I love the many aspects that come with my job. I enjoy teaching math, teaching life skills, learning, listening and being a stable adult in my student's lives. The culture of this city is fascinating, and the coping mechanisms each child uses is as varied as the number of children. Today, I wish my job was just about math. I wish that I didn't feel responsible for so many other aspects of their lives and worry about what might happen before they get back to school tomorrow.
I made a really yummy chili with sweet potatoes and black beans tonight. It was kinda like comfort food, in the warm and delicious sort of way.
