As the end of the year comes to a close and I’m packing up my classroom I look back on my seven years as the art teacher at Hanahan Middle School and smile. I have met some wonderful friends and coworkers who I love dearly. I have learned from my students and I appreciate all they have shared with me. I love the teacher that I have become and as I set off on my new adventure in international education I feel prepared for the next step. In the words of the late Maya Angelou,
“Do the best you can until you know better.
The when you know better, do better.”
