That’s A Wrap!

Today I packed up the rest of the items in my office. After 3 years and 7 months, I ended my time as the Academic Support Specialist for the Blue Ribbon Mentor-Advocate Program. I’ve learned a lot and met some amazing people. But as I made  my way out today, I realized how ready I am for the next adventure. I think we can be in a place that challenges us and let’s us grow. But I also think we can reach limits. What was once the perfect place for you to be, can become a less than perfect place when you’ve grown beyond the parameters of where you are. And when that happens, it is time to move on.

 

And so, I am. Next week I move on to become the Coordinating Literacy Teacher for HS. It’s a move back to the world of literacy and high school students. A world I love. And it’s a chance to grow and learn. It’s a wrap on one chapter and the beginning of a new one…

  1. Good luck on your new path! I also am considering a change. I love math and there may be a position available next year. However, there are things about my life as a teacher of all subjects that I would miss, especially teaching reading and having the same kids to work with all year. I will have time to consider my options. The tough part is leaving behind things you love for new things you know you will also love. What to do?

  2. Growing is a good thing – and recognizing when it’s time to move from one opportunity to the next is a great gift.I can’t wait to hear how the new job goes.
