I have to admit change is not my favorite thing. I know it is good and helps me grow as an individual. But I love routines and knowing what the future brings. This week one of my least favorite things happened. Change. My principal called me and said "There has been a change. We no longer need you to teach next year." Boom. Just like that. Fired before I even got the chance to start. Needless to say, I was a little devastated.
I've had a couple of days to adjust and have decided that I can deal with this change. It means I will be able to spend more time with my husband and we will be able to take a trip to meet his family I have not met this summer. I have applied to several new places and am open to working as a substitue or in other honorable roles.
Is teaching my first choice? Yes! But I am willing to grow and stretch into areas that are not comfortable for me. I am still going to be researching and reading. I refuse to stop growing. So stay tuned for updates. Just realize how lucky you are. You get to change the lives of little children. You get to prepare to teach. And you make a difference.
I am only a little jealous. :)


  1. Madison,
