As all teachers know, the last week of school produces a phenomena wherein times begins to move at a slow, glacial, one might even say geological pace. I’m pretty sure I saw the clock moving backwards yesterday. 5 days to go. I might make it.
TO BOLT OR NOT TO BOLT; THAT IS THE QUESTION
This summer I’ll be faced with the option of continuing my teaching career in a middle school environment, or taking a job in the private sector for much more money. A switch to middle school will be a nice change of pace after a decade in the elementary arena. The private sector job will involve working with a close friend on a project I’ve been unofficially involved in for 8 years, and in which I am a stockholder.
I’m leaning towards the private sector. At times I wonder if teaching is my vocation and I’m supposed to stick with it. Other times I know I’m burned out and need to change. The decision doesn’t need to be made right away, and indeed, circumstances may end up making the decision for me. I’d welcome any input you faithful few readers may have.
