My dear readers, I have a story to tell you, like to hear it, here it goes: I don’t like change. I know this is not a good thing, but I sometimes stay in a situation that is not good for me longer than is healthy. Don’t get me wrong, when I have to do it, I do it. But if I don’t have to, I will not, or I will do it kicking and screaming. Presently, I am being forced to change. I have to change. Well, unluckily or luckily for me, (however you want to look at it), I don’t have a choice in the matter. I was displaced at the end of last year. Even though I knew that I could have gotten a way better job, I wouldn’t have tried. If given the choice, I would not have changed jobs. However, I was not given a choice. So, I am looking for a new job. I think I’ve found a job. In fact, it’s a job that I would not have thought I wanted. It’s for a middle school position. In my nearly nine years working in special ed, I’ve never worked in a middle school. Truth be told, I was scared to do so. At that age, they can be so obnoxious. But, they can also be very sweet, like my David.
So, I have decided it’s time to step outside my comfort zone and try something new. During the time I’ve been looking for a job, I keep coming across middle school jobs that seem perfect for me. Never have I even thought about middle school. Now, I can’t seem to get it out of my head. I’d say it is more than coincidence. I think I’m being led into that direction. I know it’s up to me whether I follow or not. And I, my dear reader, choose to follow. I haven’t been officially offered the job yet, but if given the chance, I will accept it. I will step outside my comfort zone and try something new. So, as always, join me on my journey, won’t you.
