The Beginning of the End…
I’ve decided as I work my way through my twenty-ninth year of teaching that this will be my final year in the classroom. I was keeping a journal of thoughts and feelings on the matter and will use this blog to chronicle my last year in the profession. I was unsure at first as to what my final decision would be, but it’s become clear to me that this will be my last in the profession.
So over the next eight months, I will chronicle my comings and goings, especially relating to the workplace and all the thoughts and emotions that go with the institution that has taken a part of each of the past forty-four years in my life.
I also realize these entries will be the gateway into a new and exciting part of my life in which I’m able to do some of those things I’ve always wanted to do. As of right now, I’m unsure what I’ll do at the end of the school year, but I do know to take it one day at a time and keep my eyes focused on what’s really important.
