The blizzard turned out to be more damaging than I knew. Some communities were without power and heat for four days or more.
This article appeared on the front page of Rapid City Journal regarding the conditions in Wanblee, where four Teach for America teachers live and work.
I can't even imagine what the last several days have been like for the people there or for all of my students here.
There's a part of me that does not want to go back to being a Teacher on Wednesday--- but another part of me that will be relieved to see the kids again and feel lucky to be teaching them.
