When I sat down to this interview with Shana LaFore, I didn’t know what she was going to ask or what I was going to say, and I must say I surprised myself. While those of you that are close to me, know that I’ve been thinking about leaving leaving teaching, it wasn’t something that I had yet to make public, or even planned to.
I’d been reluctant to share that I’m considering leaving teaching for several reasons. The most important being that I didn’t want my students to misunderstand. I love teaching and love my students, in fact, they’re what makes this so hard , but as I mention in the interview, I’ve learned that the public system and my views and thoughts on education don’t match. ( I’ll be sharing more about education on a new site that I’m working on, so you’ll have to wait a few more weeks to pick my brain on the topic. )
A few points that I want to make sure that you don’t miss:
1. Missing book pages changed my life
2. Here’s the link if you’re interested in finding out more about the PA Guild of Craftsman
5. Practice saying yes, and once you do, be sure to put things into perspective. The end result is usually not as scary as we make it out to be.
6. I don’t want to tell a story of fear. In the comments, tell me what story your life is telling.
