    • Thank you for your comment – I’m so glad you’ve helped your daughters with these things. 8th grade is what I teach, and I really appreciate young women who come with these strengths. I hope more parents are encouraged by these things . . .

  1. I remember that transition from the wholy internal perspective to suddenly becoming aware of how I interacted with the kids around me. It was like being woken up from a dream. Abruptly it was all supposed to matter, what I wore, how I talked. It was around this time I was in the school bathroom with a friend who looked at me in the mirror and essentially told me I shouldn’t use my vocabulary, that it was weird. I was shocked. I never considered such things before. And I did try. But, thankfully I had some amazing teachers (and parents:) who kept pushing me to be excellent at what I loved.
