For the rest of the term I will, like far too many teachers have to do, work PT after finishing up at school.
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit nervous about transitioning back into cubicle city. My last work experience ended pretty badly and I still have periods of actual, genuine anger about what went on and how the curtain finally came down.
With the exception of that sentence I just wrote though, I've gotten better at keeping it (1) to myself (2).
I don't know what's going to happen next (3) and I guess none of us ever do.
What I do know is that the time I've been able to spend teaching has been fantastic and I'm grateful that I found this opportunity at a time when I most needed it.
Ironic that the kid who hated high school found so much peace of mind by heading back.
2. I know. It's really time for me to let it go. I'm just not very good at that.
3. Since there is still a wild card or two out there for me.
