Is This Thing On?

is this thing on

Tap. Tap. Tap.

Well, hello there. I could play dumb and make excuses, but let’s just get this out of the way.

It’s been awhile.

A long while. 

A very long while.


I’ve spent the last several months processing. In the span of two years, a lot of things have happened in my world, mostly negative and often devastating. And the election results–locally and nationally–and their aftermath have played a part too.

Since I lost my teaching job last year, I’ve had a few short-term jobs. Not in education. And I’ve received unemployment benefits for weeks on end as I tried to find something, anything. (A career as an educator has no value when you’re looking to leave the classroom.) Where I’ll be working later this year is still a huge question mark, but I’m still an advocate for public education.

I don’t know if I’m ready to write again, but if I don’t start now, I probably never will.

So hello. I’m back.

What’s new with you?

    I’m glad you’re back! I’ve missed your voice, and believe me, I know you have a lot to say!
