I was quite nervous to be returning to teaching after having 14 months off. Colleagues told me that it would be like riding a bike...it will come right back. I doubted them. I shouldn't have. The first 15 minutes of Block A were kind of awkward, then I was right back in the groove. It was like I didn't leave, except that when I go home, I have two babies to look after instead of just myself.
The first week was exhausting, but fun. I feel so fortunate that I can say that my "job" is actually fun. I'm teaching two courses that I've never taught before, which stressed (stresses?) me out. So far I'm really enjoying the content of the classes. It also helps that my students seem to be eager to learn. So far.
