Hi guys. I know it’s been a while, and I’m sorry. Life has been nuts. Let me explain what is going on.
First, work was a bit crazy. It’s going to be crazy for any first year teacher. 🙂 It was a good crazy, and I learned tons, but it was still crazy. Especially toward the end of the year.
Second, I had a lot of choices to make and a lot to consider. I had to figure out if I wanted to return and teach a second year. I knew it would get easier in the second year, but I wasn’t sure I’m meant to be a teacher. I’m a bit too introverted. I get drained when I am “on” for long periods, and I was not a big fan of being in front of big groups all day. Teaching is a beautiful and wonderful career, and my students were great, for sure. I just don’t have the specific strengths that make a teacher thrive.
I decided teaching isn’t what I’m meant to do, so it’s off to the next adventure…. Not sure what that will be just yet. But I know it’s coming and it will teach me new and different things. So that’s good. Anyway, I will definitely try to be better about posting. I can’t believe I was gone as long as I was. I was dealing with some personal stuff…. Still am, but now the school year is finished I have immeasurably more time on my hands.
So I will be back. In fact, I’m about to write a real post right now. I do plan to be more active….. Active regularly. Thanks for bearing with me!
