Brown Butter Pumpkin Cake with Whipped Icing
There have been a lot of big changes so far this month. A new school year. A new school, even! A different set of students to see each morning, a different set of teachers to get to know. A different schedule with a different commute. But there’s one big change I wasn’t totally expecting…

This is my eleventh year teaching, but every single year one thing remains the same: the beginning of school is terrifying. And actually, the past two years have been especially hard. I don’t know why; my best guess is that when I took a year off to go to grad school, I lost my faith that I could teach. It made the beginning of last year so rocky: I just didn’t feel right in front of these kids who expected so much from me. Was I really the right teacher for them?
