I have been avoiding this blog for a long while because of what it has to turn into. I have to let the change happen because change is happening. My first impulse was to blog all about it because while others write to learn I write to learn about myself and, man, have there been so many questions lately. For a long time, if I’m honest. Then I decided against it and I wrote in my private journal – volumes. I didn’t want – and still don’t want – to encourage others to give up.
I’m leaving the profession. I’m finishing out the year, hoping to leave on a high note, then quitting and I’m going to focus on my writing career and whatever else I decided to do to, you know, pay the bills. I began the year on a high – I never felt so strong! I said and quickly crashed.
So I have cycled back around to blogging about it. I will share my reasons for walking away from the teaching profession but I will also share reasons to stay – or become – a teacher. So, we are nearing the last 90 days and this will be their record.
