Alright, now to the meat of my post...I've been a Middle School English teacher for 10 years. I know!! Crazy, huh? Well, I have. I've gotten so much joy from teaching middle school students because I remember thinking my life was over so many times as a teenager and I wanted to be there for those students to make sure they know everything will be okay. Well, what if after 10 years of teaching...I'm not okay?
I was told that my contract was not going to be renewed for the 2016-2017 school year and that I should resign. Wow...what do I say to that?? "You're a great teacher and the students love you, but we will not be asking you back for next year." What??
So, this brings me to the question...after ten years of teaching do I still want to teach?? Do I want to try something new?? I'm in my early thirties and never thought that this would even come up. I love teaching...right?? I love the kids, but the adults? Not so much.
I have a lot to think about...I will keep you updated!!
