Today feels like a closing of a book somewhat. I am having my class end of year party (even though we have another 1/2 day tomorrow) and I've had these kiddios for 2 years, kinder and first. I can not believe I have to give them back to their parents and hope that they don't screw them up! LOL!

Every year I look back and decide well I did the best I could, and this year is no different. I did the best I could with these kids, and I think I got them well prepared for second grade.

But I feel a shift in me. I feel myself being pulled away from the classroom. Away from the politics I can no longer sit by and watch, away from the parents who don't care about their kids (not all parents in my class are like that, I have A LOT of amazing parents, but I always have some) and away from the broken education system that leaves the kids who need the most help without. I am so excited about the new path I am pursuing, but I know I am not ready to leave the classroom yet, emotionally or financially, LOL!

But here's to the future and the path God has laid out for me

  1. I'm sad that you're on a path to leave the classroom, though I completely understand it. Most of the good teachers do leave and we are left with the mediocre and the downright awful teachers. And they go on to be the bad administrators and leaders. The system just keeps getting worse. I don't know how to fix it, but losing our GREAT teachers makes me sad
