It’s almost a bit surreal, but today I get inducted as an alumnus of Teach For America. After all the ups and downs of the past two years, and all the times I wanted to quit, I feel going to Alumni Induction will represent one of the hardest-earned accomplishments of my life. It definitely is, on a personal level, even though I feel more equivocal about what I have actually accomplished for my students. Even on the worst days, the desire to finish what I started has been a huge motivation. In any case, I couldn’t have made it without countless prayers and all the support of everyone.
