“I was pretty prepared, but it is still very hard,” Ras said.
Ras also said that she has had a great experience with her son even though the first month was a struggle, as she could not go to sleep with Calvin either wanting to eat, cry or sleep.
She said that when she first saw her son smile, she knew whether he was happy or sad and that cleared things up. Ras spoke about her potential trip to Disneyland with Calvin.
“It is May 13, so it is coming up, he’ll only be seven months old, so I do not think he will be able to ride Space Mountain yet,” Ras said jokingly.
Ras said she had a bit of a tough time returning to school as she had to keep track of a lot of different tasks. She said that the support and friendliness of her peers helped her ease back into school.
“My colleagues have welcomed me back and have really kept me on track since I have returned,” Ras Said.
Ras’s students were overjoyed to have her back.
“I am glad Ms. Ras is back because she always comes to class excited and very organized,” Gabe Glassman ‘22.
