The seaweed isn't always greener....

I learned an important lesson this last year...

The seaweed isn't always greener.

Almost exactly one year ago (tomorrow I believe) I accepted a job teaching at a new school. 

I thought that this move was going to be a positive one. 

Simply put....it was not. 

7 months and 5 days later I decided to adjust accordingly. 

I decided back in February that that school was NOT the place for me and decided that I would not renew my contract there come hell or high water. 

I loved my kids there. They were some of the best kids I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.


Everything else practically killed me. 

Everything I liked about education, creating, presenting, and even breathing was beaten out of me. 

I'm sure that you guys noticed that I didn't blog or most new products for practically a year. The idea of doing ANYTHING was an insurmountable task. 

I think I have finally had enough time to move beyond all that, and finally feel like I am back on track. 

I've started writing and creating and looking forward to ACTUALLY teaching again!

I have a long list of new things I want to do in my classroom next year, which means a lot of work, but it doesn't feel like WORK anymore....especially creating things to order on VistaPrint (Although is it  just me or do they not have many deals anymore....or am I just missing them?). 

I hope that you all had a better school year than me and that you are still hanging around here! 


  1. I've missed you so much. Glad you're back. Drop me an email if you get a chance.

  2. I missed your posts as well! Glad you're posting again and hope you have a better year!
