I taught high school English for 2 1/2 years...absolutley loved the students but hated the job. It was too absorbing. I imagined it would be fun and rewarding, like in the movie "dead poets society" HA! I found myself plowed with paperwork before/during/after school hours, parents taking up for the kids left and right, kids not coming to school and catching them up...only to have them miss another 2 weeks, going to meeting after meeting, constantly reading classics (missed my ole junk book reading
), clubs on the side, collecting overtime and not being paid for it, and the neverending politics...oh the list goes on! I absolutely began to lose myself and the things that I enjoy.
So, I bailed out and do not regret it one bit!
Someday, I want to own my own small business...just can't figure out what kind!
