Here I am at the end of a long day. Reviewing student essays at our kitchen table, trying to "zero out." Tomorrow will bring dozens more. My students are all working hard to make sure that the colleges to which they're applying understand who they are and what makes them tick. And some of them have learned a bit about themselves in the process.
I think I do this part of my job well, and have always found competence appealing. So I like this picture of me deep in the thick of the work.
