“Teenagers can frustrate you, but then you turn around and they’re tugging at your heartstrings. As a teacher, you plan your class, but you have no idea when, all of a sudden, a student will have one question. One life question. There are some questions that need to be answered right away. Each day is new, each day is different, and each day is fun. All of the external stuff fades away when I’m in front of the kids. That’s where I need to be. That’s home.”
