Every day at EHS is different. Upon college graduation, I wasn’t sure what I wanted in a career but had always been intrigued by the prospect of teaching. The diversity of the experience at EHS, from teaching to coaching to advising to learning from both students and colleagues, is what has kept me coming back.
As a modern American history nerd, I find the 1970s fascinating. The decade not only humanized and humbled the United States on the global stage, but also rested at the crossroads between old and new world political and economic orders. Plus, there were some truly crazy stories to emerge out of those ten years – Patty Hearst’s kidnapping, the New York City blackout, Disco, etc.
While it’s not necessarily criticism, I once heard someone explain the difference between being successful and being ordinary is having the fortitude to avoid doing something you really want to do but know that you shouldn’t do, as well as the discipline to do something that you should do but really don’t want to do.
