I'm back to work full time this fall, teaching second grade.
My principal asked me not long after I wrote this post, and I said an enthusiastic YES without pause. It was time. And now, here I am.
The things I love about teaching lured me back: the creative outlet, the people, the growth, the inspiration. The things that are TOUGH won't scare me away, but often leave me exhausted, limply clutching the many balls I'm juggling.
It's going to be quite a year of personal growth.
