I read somewhere recently that a job is what you do, not who you are.
I have to say I disagree with that. I am a teacher. Yes that is my job, and yes that is what I do. But I also believe being a teacher is a HUGE part of who I am as well.
I think Taylor Mali says it best with: What Teachers Make
Does that mean I am ONLY a teacher no. I am also a wife, a daughter, a friend, a cousin, a niece, and so much more.
Awhile ago I wrote about how I felt like I was stuck in a rut. I hated my job, my life, and just felt numb. Sadly, I can’t say much has changed since then For the past 3 months now I’ve been interviewing for a new teaching job, but with little success. It’s beyond frustrating to keep interviewing without a positive result. I am SO over it all, but I don’t want to be resigned to a job that I HATE. With every fiber in my being I DO NOT want to go back to work at the school I am at. It’s a train wreck. I have never hated a job as much as I do this one. If I could financially quit I would. It’s sad because I love most of the kiddos there. It’s not their fault that people in power have made poor decisions that have or will affect them. It’s not their fault no one has a FUCKING clue what a hell hole that place is. I HATE feeling like this. I hate feeling numb. I need something to change.
