The other day I looked at my son Camden and said, “Go line up at the door.” OK, so school had just ended and I was obviously still in teacher-mode, but I had a small suspicion that if I kept telling Cam to line up at the door, that I’d probably soon be asking him to raise his hand to speak or rewarding him with five minutes of extra recess if he stayed on task. The truth is, school hadn’t “just ended” for me, but my days as an elementary school teacher had just ended. At least for now. And I was still hanging on, not ready to let that teacher part of me go.
As long as I can remember I have wanted to be a teacher. I even have this picture I drew of myself teaching when I was in 6th grade.
Ironically I ended up teaching 6th grade for 5 years. But I also had another dream my whole life, to be a mom. So, this year is different. I’m done teaching. For now at least.
So stay tuned for updates and adventures from me, as we work to inspire each other and cheer each other on. This will be one wild ride you won’t want to miss!
