I want to say what the other person needs me to say in that moment

I have often thought about my communication with others, verbally and non-verbally. When I smiled at the person in the grocery store, how did it effect that person? What was on their minds at that time when a stranger smiled a goofy smile at them? Or when I engage in conversation with one person, am I giving good advice, helping, or would just listening be the better action in this moment? I am often reminded of the finality of the end of our lives. With having cancer, that threat of an earlier death than I had anticipated has brought me to a place in my life where I am reflecting on my impact in society.

Going forward I want this to be a source for good

I started this blog with the intention of sharing the daily insights of what it was like to be a substitute teacher. I didn’t think people would actually be into reading my thoughts/experiences inside the classroom. I have little control over what is taught in the classroom, as permanent teachers and administrators are the ones who oversee that on a day-to-day and yearly basis. So in layman’s terms I’m pivoting, or shifting the content from my daily struggles and anecdotes to sharing trends (the good and the bad) within the education realm from the standpoint of a future educator.
