Teaching has been changing me. I used to be so shy, but I'm so much more confident and sure of myself. Today, when I was going to buy a parking permit, I didn't quietly and politely inquire what the lines leading up to the parking office were for. Many people were doing that. It is what I used to do, but now I simply, loudly stated my question and knew I would be getting an answer from someone, somehow. I looked people in the eye, and someone answered. It was... different. Nice.
