Tuesday, October 3, 2017

I may or may not barely have my head above the water enough to take a breath on this Tuesday that is two, or maybe three months from the last Tuesday I wrote.  How can this possibly happen every year that it takes months before I feel like I have a grip on my teaching life?

I have so much to reflect on:
Teaching full time for the first time in 22 years.

Bidding a sweet see you later to the perfect compliment to me of the past 7 years as my job share partner moved to another building.

Welcoming a teacher candidate and learning to be a mentor.

Finding peace and calm in the exceedingly turbulent waters of my current workplace.

Rerouting my energy to my kids to the East coast to the West coast.

But for now, I need to breath and get what sleep I can before another long, long day.

    This list is a keeper – stories to tell, thoughts to ponder, emotions to hold.. My favourite line is “Finding peace and calm in the exceedingly turbulent waters of my current workplace.” I hope that you will find the tie to write more about this.
