|Oh, I'll have work to do at home, but no more grading at home? I'm intrigued. What is it like?|
Yesterday, I read a blog post called How to Be a Teacher for More than Five Years Without Killing Yourself or Others and it moved me. How I wish I would have taken the advice in this post years ago. However, even if someone would have sat me down to give me this advice-- and I'm quite sure my mentor Ryan did-- I probably wouldn't have listened. As I pack up my classroom, I wonder if maybe I've just burnt out, but I don't feel burnt out. Not to compare a career I love and have built over the last eight years to a small shirt, but maybe I've outgrown classroom teaching. That too-small-shirt feeling makes me feel sure too.
Wish me luck, my friends.
*Am I back to blogging? I don't know. I hope so! I'll work on the banner change if I decide that I'm going to write more often than every few months. I just felt the need to write today. ;p
