So I haven’t been using this blog, but I have been thinking about it. I have decided to try blogging again. I need a place to put my thoughts, so I think I will use this. I am not a fan of facebook and other form of social media. I guess I don’t think people need to know what you are having for dinner or what you are wearing. There might be a special occasion for that, but I just don’t think all that stuff is that important. Don’t people have better things to do with their time?
A lot has happened since my last post. I am living in TN again, and I love it. I miss some of the people from CA, but I don’t miss the heat or the sand. I absolutely love my house and 5 acres. It is so peaceful and quiet. I am teaching geometry again. The school is okay, and the kids are pretty good. I am not enjoying teaching anymore though. I think it is because I am teaching math. I never intended to teach math when I got my teaching credential. I simply picked it up to ensure that I would be able to find a teaching job no matter where I moved. That has worked out for me, but now I can’t get a PE/ Health position. I have had 3 principals tell me they will not give me a health or pe position because they don’t want to have to find a new math teacher. It is hard to fake enthusiasm for 11 years. I am glad I have a job, but I want to still love my job. Maybe writing this will help me process my thoughts and feelings, so that I can figure out what to do next in my career.
