First week back

It is truly the woman's dilemma.

I love what I do. I am a semester away from a Master's degree. I love working with kids with learning disabilities and ADHD. I love the intellectual part of reading research and figuring out how to best help kids. I remember the teachers who have made an incredible impact on me, and I hope to be that teacher for my kids.

But, I hate leaving Kellen at home. I miss him all day and worry about him. I can't wait to see him at lunch and am anxious to get home after school. I always knew leaving a kid at home would be hard, but it is 1000% times harder than I even imagined.

I have made it two days, and I will make it many more. And Kellen will be ok.

  1. Kellen WILL be okay - and you WILL impact many lives as a teacher. You already have.
