Found out from my principal yesterday that she would like to expand my job to a full-time position next year. She would like me to stay, but I don’t want to work full-time, so that means I will probably be moving on. Mostly, I feel relieved. I love teaching, but I can feel the possibilities opening up in front of me. To have time, again, for writing and yoga and cooking. To have more time with my son as he goes through high school — I cannot believe my little guy will only be living at home for four more years! To be able to indulge the pull of my heart for travel.
Ah. I feel like I’ll be able to breathe fully again.
