Positive Thinking Thursday! 5/15



make that change, take a chance #quote #motivation #inspriation

This is what helped me make the decision to pack up my life (husband and one dog at the time) last summer and move 12 hours away from everyone and everything I knew. When I got hired for my dream job so many emotions went through me. Most made me terrified. How could I leave everything? But I had to. There are not many jobs in NY and my home district kind of really sucks. There are not many charter schools where I am from. There is not much respect for teachers where I am from.

I am happy in NC in my charter school surrounded by parents that respect not only me but teachers as a whole. I am in a charter school that allows me to teach the way that is best for my students, not what someone who isn't in a classroom thinks is best. 

It was terrifying to move, but if I hadn't that feeling of regret would have been a million times worse.

  1. I love this quote! I actually moved from New York to North Carolina as well. Granted, I was only 8 at the time, so I didn't have much of a choice. However, I made another big change as an adult to move to Ohio. Absolutely no regrets!

    I am always excited to find new fourth grade bloggers. I am your latest follower, and I'm looking forward to reading your blog in the future. Have a great weekend!
