At the end of Winter Break, I resigned from the public school I’d worked at for 5.5 years (more on this later, perhaps) to accept another teaching position at a small private alternative school.
My first day at the new school was great! But the best part was this text I received from a former colleague:
“…One of my advocates asked me if you had left [old school] to become a stripper…
(They thought it was a good choice because it pays more than being a teacher)”
