Really? Burnt out after seven short years? Yes, I think I’m in that “throw in the towel” mode with this teaching thing. I feel like I’m losing the joy of teaching that I used to have. Not sure if it’s school issues or home issues or a combination of both, but I’m definitely in need of a break. PB thinks I’m going through a burnt out phase and that it will pass. So – my teacher friends out there – let me know if you’ve felt like you’re not making a bit of difference, and more importantly, PLEASE tell me that it passes quickly!
Besides being in my little “funk” with school, things at home are also in a period of transition. A few weeks ago, PB was called to another church. There are feelings of excitement as we look to meet and join with a new church family at First Baptist Church of North Brentwood, but there are also feelings of sadness as we say good-bye to our church family at Ebenezer Baptist Church. The whole process has been truly God-led, but that’s another whole blog topic.
Last weekend, the Party of 6 went to a Halloween party at a co-worker’s house. Cub 2 is one of four teacher’s kids in the first grade at Malcolm Elem. There are three boys and one girl (of course, the girl is the boss of them all). We have to limit their playtime at school, but when they all have the opportunity to get together outside of school, it’s always a great time! Cubs 1 and 2 were Iron Man and Iron Man’s sidekick (can’t remember his name). Cub 3 was a pumpkin. We don’t take the time, nor do we have the time to throw together elaborate custom-made costumes. A quick 30-minute trip to the costume shop is worth it – for our sanity! Lol!
Peace and Blessings!
