Hello everyone!

The new academic year has started and I am welcoming my new students. Life is hectic, but joyful. I've met so many young, interesting, exciting people full of life and promise. It is amazing to be a small part of helping them reach their potential.

The downside is that I've not had as much time available to blog as I would have liked.
