I'm not the only one...

A couple of my friends are also taking a year off from teaching to experience something a little different, and they've been chronicling their experiences on their own blogs. I've thoroughly enjoyed reading about their experiences away from home, and I wanted to share some links with you.

Courtney and I started teaching at John Young the same year. She is outgoing, always up for a challenge, and more adventurous than I am. She's taking a year off to travel around the United States staying with friends and family. She started her travels by heading to Connecticut but has already moved on to Georgia. Recently she shared about an experience that can only be classified as MORTIFYING. I double dog dare you to read it without laughing.

My other friend Becca has taught at Goshen High School for the past 7 years. She decided to take a year off and travel the world. She started her adventure in July with climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa. She's currently volunteering at a school in Tanzania for a few weeks. One of her recent posts explained some differences between teaching in the States and teaching in Tanzania. Go ahead and try not to laugh at the ridiculousness of her current conditions.
