INSPIRING STORY OF THE WEEK: A BLESSNG IN DISGUISE
A BLESSING IN DISGUISE
With so many teachers leaving their beloved careers, Laura shares her story of making that hard decision to say enough is enough. Read her inspiring story of how it turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
No one expected the COVID-19 pandemic back in March of 2020. Teachers said “goodbye” to their students one Thursday afternoon, only to see them through computer screens for the rest of the year. Teachers had to learn a whole new way of teaching, communicating, lesson planning, grading, and classroom management. Just when they felt settled with a “new norm”, they were told to pivot to a new platform or technology update. When teachers and students returned to in-person learning in the Fall of 2020, things continued to change, at an even faster pace.
Work frustrations followed Laura home and she began to see the tolls taken on her health. With over twenty years of joyous teaching under her belt, she knew she had to make a change. For the first time, the stress was overpowering the joy. With her family’s support, Laura made the difficult decision of resigning from the public school system.
In this inspiring story, Laura explains how bravely following her intuition to make a change was a positive life lesson for her and children.
