Man, this whole future thing is an up and down rollercoaster!!! Just as I'm starting to really get used to the idea of leaving the classroom to work from home I'm hit with a ton of bricks! I received two extremely sweet e-mails yesterday. One was from a parent and another was from my district mentor. Today as I was packing up my classroom I came across my staff picture. I was looking at all of the faces who helped mold me into who I am as a teacher and I can't believe that after 5 1/2 years, I'm leaving this place. It's so bittersweet. Sometimes more bitter than sweet and vice versa.
I know that God will give both Dirk and I a peace about what we're supposed to do but being in this position is so difficult. Knowing that the Lord has worked through me to work in these kids lives and knowing that people have been encouraged by my teaching is difficult to deal with. On the flip side, I know that my family is suffering from my committment to this job and that's not okay in my book. My heart is so torn. I feel that I have a confirmation from the Lord on what to do but it's not easy. May He be glorified!!!
