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?
