In June, I resigned from my dream job at a place I absolutely adored. This was a place where I had a family of coworkers who helped & supported me. Leaving was not an easy decision, but I knew that I wouldn’t be happy settling down and planting roots if I didn’t venture out & travel more first. Honestly, resigning was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made. The unknown is always the scariest part of life. I didn’t know whether I’d find another teaching job, or if I did, would I find a place as accepting and supportive as my previous job? These were the questions that haunted me for months before finally deciding to resign. Once I did, it was like a huge weight was lifted off my chest. I’m the type of person who truly believes that everything happens for a reason. After everything fell apart, I didn’t know where to turn. I lost sight of what it was that I wanted. Although things did not at all happen the way I had prayed they would, I am moving forward. Yesterday, I was officially approved as a teacher in a new school district, teaching students with disabilities & I could not be happier or more proud of myself for being able to move forward and starting this new chapter of my life.
