Who would have thought! Was I really ‘running away’ from it? Running away from 30 years of teaching? The answer is: “yes I was running away, running far from it!” Didn’t I have other options?
I didn’t recognize myself anymore while standing in front of a class. Well, some bits and pieces of me as an enthusiastic, creative teacher were still there but those last two years had almost crushed me.
I’m not running away anymore because now I know exactly who I am and I love it!
