each year i head out to south bend for the annual teacher convention. its usually a bit of fun because i get to see some old friends i went to college with and catch up with them. its also kind of strange because i also see all the teachers that taught me in high school. now as a peer i call them by their first names. i dont think that will ever feel normal! this year's speaker was father joseph krupp. he was amazing- a very funny man (which makes sense, he was a stand-up comedian before becoming a priest) and shared some very inspiring and encouraging words. i also got to chat for a bit with my favorite teacher ever: mrs. jager! immediately after talking with her i texted my fellow junior high classmate adam and he was terribly jealous that i got to see her! there was a lot of cool stuff there this year and i look forward to next year!
