But unless you've talked to me in the last week, there's something I haven't told you.
I resigned from my job, effective June 2.
Budget cuts, don't work for the insurance, seemed like the right time, others would get cut, bleeding heart for others, Chuck's support, time for change, control of change, moving on seemed right, feeling restless. Pick one.
I just felt a nudge. There are a lot of changes taking place in public school.....being driven by budget cuts and billion dollar deficits. My job was safe but the position wasn't. What I had was coming to an end and it felt like time to exit.
I've always been the "jump into the deep end and hope I can swim" type. I know things will work out......somehow.
I quit one job without having another one waiting so that is jumping into the deep end. Hoping I can swim. I will find something. But I know it will never be as sweet and as great as what I had. These past 7 years have been wonderful. And I'm going to miss a lot of things.
What I'm going to miss:
- The kids
- The teachers
- The hours
- The Holiday and Spring breaks...and summers off
- The frenzy
- The laughter
- The hugs
- The commute ....5 minutes
Walking through a kindergarten classroom late this afternoon, I heard this....
One boy telling his teacher while pointing to another boy....
Him: He just said the A word with hole after it.
I kept moving. That's the beauty of my job....I get to laugh and keep moving
I will miss that kind of stuff the most.
Are you hiring?
