On the Outside Looking In!

Greetings to ANYone out there still taking the time to read this blog.  By now...you know I don't blog on the regular (the ultimate understatement!)  LOL!  I mean...REALLY!  How do folks keep up with all these virtual social engagements?!  I just can't do it.  And I will save my apologies!

I have been busy setting things in motion for my peace and balance.  I find I am my own BEST teacher whenever I operate at my most grounded and self-CENTER. I am SUPERWOMAN! YES! That's exactly how I feel right now.

Every time the "Back-to-School" song and dance starts, I suffer a brief case of classroom fever.  I find myself scrolling through the pages of MOREAP to discover teaching positions still available.   This time, I blame it on the beautiful and intelligent 9-12 year old children I had the honor of teaching while volunteering at the Gamble Center this summer.  WOW!  I get so much life from teaching our babies. It truly is a gift and honor!

As far as serving them in a classroom setting under systematic restrictions... I'LL PASS!  However,  I continue to bow graciously to those who still fight the good fight from the inside!  We need teacher warriors inside and outside the box.  Fortunately for me, I've been gone too long to return to the inside. I am officially a wild card at this point. LOL!  How could I possibly return full time to a traditional setting?  I have never been fired from any job, but I fear I just might if I sign on any dotted line that commits me to a TRADITIONAL teaching setting!

Until I find that dream school, I will continue as a rogue teacher who serves young people wherever I find them...or they find me.
