So I’ve decided to become a teacher. My friends and family act like I’ve decided to become a nun. They ask too many questions. It leads me to understand why it’s best to keep your plans to yourself, at least until they come to fruition. “Who, what, when, where and why?” I don’t have all of the answers yet. The fact that I’m even wanting to become a teacher is amazing, even to me. It has been an idea that has crossed my mind more than a few times, only to be dismissed. It wasn’t until I came across a chapter of a book written by Maya Angelo, that it became so clear. The title of the book was “Even the Stars Look Lonesome.” The title of the second to last chapter was “Those who know, teach.” I immediately put the book down and put in a search for teaching positions. Since then, there has been this drive in me that I’ve not had for much of anything in a long time. I feel like I’ve gotten back on a track from which I had been derailed. I have a new determination to make this happen. It feels good.
