Over this last week I have been struggling with the idea of applying for another position in my school district. Being a resource teacher would get me out of the classroom, so it was a very tempting idea with all of the struggles I've faced with having such a big class this year.
Twenty nine, yes 29, kids that are 6, 7, or 8 years old is interesting to say the least.
There were so many pluses with the idea of leaving the classroom...no report cards...no conferences...no millions of copies and materials to prep...but I was just unsettled by it all.
I literally was sick to my stomach as the decision tumbled around in my mind all last weekend and into the beginning of the week. What to do...what to do...so many encouraging me to go for it...but a nagging voice in my mind. We have so many amazingly good changes coming up next year and leaving the classroom would take me out of experiencing a fresh approach to teaching.
So after pleading in prayer for direction the decision was made...I am staying put.
Teaching is what I do, I'm good at it and I love it...not always, but most of the time.
I see big positive changes on our campus next year...
it's going to be exciting to refocus on teaching and not test giving.
My stomach is settled and my heart is content...
I think all of my prayers asking for guidance were answered...
I am a classroom teacher.
Until next time,
Linking up with Miss Casey
