Njka is a visualization project that I am trying to turn into a novel. It documents my ideas for the journey of a rookie teacher through the first year of teaching in a community that is quite different from the one in which she grew up. Those who know me know that I am currently working toward certification as an English teacher. This project is my way of working on my teaching philosophy, critically reflecting upon my assumptions and cultural baggage, and preparing to face the joys and sorrows of the classroom. Those who know me, too, know that I like to write stories. In high school, I wrote stories for myself and my friends all the time; some of my friends even liked them! So, if you would like to go on this journey with me, click on the image above and take a look around. The login is guest and the password is guest. If you want to become part of the “community,” just sign up! Thanks!
