Okay, I know ive been terrible about posting, but I gotta get at least this one in for those of you still keeping up.
Graduation was so moving and after that the principal told me she had no one to take me over for next year.
The next day, she called me in to her office and offered me 2,000 more to come back.
Today I called her to tell her that I'd love to be a teacher in her school next year. She shrieked with happiness.
She offered me $500 to do a full friday like ive been doing till now but instead of doing half 8th half seventh, id do 7th a full day cos my co is not coming in fridays anymore.
So I'm getting $2500 more to do exactly what I did this year.
I'm also planning to start college at night so I 'know I'm going to be very stressed next year. The principal also offered to give me free subbing days where another teacher would take over my class so that I could do my marking in school without wasting time at home.
I think I have it good.
I cried when I walked into my classrooms today to pick up my books. I guess I didn't realize how much I loved teaching.
I realized today that teaching is not about making a difference in others lives as much as its about making a difference in your own life.
It definitley has changed my life. And though I know I have my down days and that next year is going to be very hard, teaching is what I love to do. I'm adjusting to mommyhood and I think that as JB grows I can learn to be there for him and for myself.
Next year will tell me more.
I know I didn't make a mistake, and I hope I don't regret this.
If I have the time I'll go back and post what stuff is missing. Right now I'm enjoying summer.
I'm not going to blog next year- I'll be too busy with a million other things, but up till here, it was great- thanks for coming along for the ride!
