Almost twenty years later, I still know the drive by heart. The campus has changed so much since I graduated Molloy College in 2001. The building behind me was a staple and I suppose it still is- Kellenberg Hall. Yet now there are many more buildings including dorms.
Everything changes, including me.
In 2001, Eve Dieringer offered me a teaching position in her school, Saltzman East Memorial. She took a chance on a brand new college graduate. Last week, Dr. Eve Dieringer invited me to speak with her class of education majors at Molloy. No longer principal, now Eve is the director of field placement and a professor at Molloy. She invited me to come talk with her students about my experiences as a teacher. I've been at Saltzman East Memorial for 18 years.
Such a full circle moment.
The smell of the hallway was the same. The staircase familiar. So much was new. Updated bathrooms. New food court.
I noticed the signs on the lampposts- each one saying "Live Your Story". I loved the slogan (of course) and felt my teaching story was deeply connected to both Eve and Molloy.
What is my bigger story? What is my life story? How do I live my story? Where do I go next?
Excited to think more about stories as we get ready to launch the March SOLSC! Are you signed up to share your story for 31 days? Let's do this!
