It’s strange to think how much might change this summer. A week ago last Friday I finished my school year, and I have no idea what 2019-2020 will bring. Ideally, I will find a full-time teaching position teaching social studies, Spanish, or business at the middle school or high school level. It is long overdue. It is time for a classroom of my own, but where?
Unfortunately, this spring hasn’t exactly gone according to plan. Something always comes between me and my dreams. I finally find a place where I can easily see myself teaching, and in the end, I may not have the correct certification to apply for existing openings. While things are humming along at the canoe livery, the weather has not cooperated yet. We are waiting on customers. Where is everyone?
I know that things will come together, but it is the uncertainty that is getting to me. I wish I had something in place. I do not know what decision I will make if I do not find a full-time teaching position. Even though I do not plan or want to move, I may be left with no choice. Something’s got to give. Here’s to a summer of new beginnings!
