"You taught me how to swim and you dropped me in the ocean. Now, I'm worried about the sharks."
-- a comment one of my first-year teachers, Fernie Salinas, shared with his education professor from college, reflecting with a heroic mix of weariness and amusement on the unpredictability of teaching before one actually goes into the classroom to teach a whole class on his own. Keep up the inspiring work, rock star. =)
