Making New Moves!

Dear Readers,

I have made a bold move- I quit teaching. I’m not sure if I’m going to return. I promised myself that if I got to the point that I did not enjoy teaching, that I would quit. Well, I was no longer enjoying. Not only that, I began experiencing anxiety and depression again. I had no peace. It just wasn’t worth it to me anymore.

The only problem is that I looooooovvvvvveeee teaching, if I can actually just teach. I don’t want to deal with administration, I don’t want to deal with parents from hell, I don’t want to deal with students cursing me out… I mean, you get the picture.

As I was looking for the perfect pic to put into this post, I actually came across a teacher resignation template. If you’re also thinking about quitting, here’s a link to the Teacher Resignation Template.

Let me know your thoughts. Have you quit teaching or are you thinking about teaching? Stay tuned for my next article on reasons why I quit teaching and what I’m doing next!

  1. I understand. I am a planner, teacher, mentor, consultant, and coach…. Yet had to walk away from both places where my genius flourished. Thank God for more opportunities and a new purpose! Looking forward to hearing what comes next for you!

  2. Hi Elise. To give you an update: I am working as a manager at a publishing company. I am really happy about working there. I’m using my skills and helping to publish books. It’s the best of both worlds.

  3. Burnout is a real. I have had to endure very difficult economic challenges in Zimbabwe due to politics, in addition to similar institutional challenges. I am still in education and looking towards working in other fields later on in my career. Self preservation is key, when I get to a point where I cannot enjoy what I do, I’ll know my time’s up.
    Thanks for your post!

  4. It was my pleasure to write it. When I write, it is always my hope that my writing will help or touch someone. So sorry that you are enduring economic challenges in Zimbabwe right now.
