It’s been a hard week, y’all. I resigned from my job as a teacher. I’m still in shock. So, I know my students, their parents and my colleagues are probably still wondering what just happened. At least that’s what I assume.
I have been a bit fearful of going up to the school to turn in my keys and gather my personal items because I have really upset some people. That wasn’t my intention. I really did make the best decision that I could, and my ultimate goal was to put my students first. You just always hope when you make a decision that affects so many people that they will understand.
All that happened on Monday.
Yesterday, which was Thursday, my little family and I went to have family pictures taken at a local park. It just so happened that one of my colleagues was at the park. I kinda froze wondering what the conversation was going to be like. To my surprise, my heart was filled with encouragement at these words, “You’re my hero.” I responded in disbelief, “Seriously?”
Here is why it is so encouraging: I said til the end that I would always stand up for what I believe is right. Fighting for what is right has been a lonely and misunderstood road. To know that my actions made me a “hero” in someone’s eyes made the road a little less lonely.
Until next time
