Hey, all! :)
So, last Saturday morning I had a teacher sorority (ADK--Alpha Delta Kappa) initiation at one of the member's homes, and because this is quite the big deal, we all needed to look a little dressier than usual. They also said in the invite to wear purple, gold, and olive green, as those are the sorority's colors. I have been a member for a few years now and I always look forward to this day...really neat to see the formality of the pinning, etc. It is also nice to be part of a sorority that is not a college sorority but a professional sorority. I was telling my friend Ellen that the thing I loved most about our sorority is that the women in it are in LOVE with education and teaching for what it is, reaching out, mentoring, being a catalyst for "a-ha" moments in a person's life, etc. I love being around that energy and although I teach far less than I used to, these women help remind me of why I still want to be an educator, in whatever form that may take. (Heck, I guess that is why I started a Mommy Style Monday column, to reach out and help mentor others in fashion...it may not be physics, but it is still a form of teaching!)
You all have a great afternoon, talk soon!
