I am quitting my job. The storm that has been brewing inside my head and making me uneasy has quieted now and I woke up this morning and realized what I need to do. I've been wanting to start my own little school for quite a while now. The teaching position I took last November was just supposed to be a temporary thing. Just finishing out the year in a class that had already seen two teachers leave. But, even though I took small baby steps towards opening my own school, I didn't really put enough time or energy into it. I just realized that if I don't do this now (finally), I probably won't ever do it. And the first step is to quit my job. Even though it's hard knowing that I might not be teaching in the fall. I love that line in the Mary Oliver poem : What will you do with your one wild and precious life? I think it's going to be my mantra for a while.
