I have been an out of work high school teacher for the past two years, paying the bills by going back to waiting tables. The first 6 months or so were so miserable. I couldn't find my purpose and was filled with negative self talk every single day. The last year or so I have come to terms with it and have really enjoyed it, so much so that it has kept me from trying to get back into teaching. Well, that and the fear. Fear of trying, fear of rejection, fear that I had lost my passion for it.
So, I finally feel like I am ready to get back out there. I had orientation this morning to start with a new district and I am very excited. I forgot how much I love teaching. There is some fear, but it's the good, butterfly in the stomach kind, not the terrifying, am I doing the right thing kind. It feels good to be moving forward again and feel like I am moving in a positive direction.
