My job in West Hartford was not my first as a teacher.  I already knew that I would be giving up my life for 10 months at a time, working 60 plus hours a week, every week, from late August to late June.  I knew about the papers to grade, the parents to contact, the lesson plans to create/modify/replace, the lab papers to read over "vacations".

So why did I sign up to do it again?

Because this country is increasingly following the credo of "ignorance and fear", and I wanted to do what I could to push back the darkness.

That's why I did it.  To create a subversive army of thinkers and send them off into the world.

To light a candle.
