today i tip my hat to matt goodman. he has finished his first year of teaching!!! he has withstood greenberg's psychological-atomic-fireball-warfare, countless paper-ball attacks by a kid who goes by russel crowe, and the obvious - learning how to teach while teaching. he has done such an amazing job.
as the wifey, i have been with him a few times while we ran into students - jose (who introduced us to his grandpa), tracy (who said "why you didn't tell us you have a dog mista?! aww hes so cute mista..."), matt the commie (who asked for a light), and rosalie (who was wearing antlers.) every one of the kids was so excited to see him, and i was so proud walking by his side. mr. goodman, my husband.
