Time flies . . .

Hello All. Don't know who is even still reading this blog.

The past year has been a challenge personally and professionally.

Maybe because I'm turning 40 in Feb or maybe I'm just starting to realize that I need to stop sweating the small stuff. . . . life is too short.

For twelve years, my life has been education. Teaching. My students. I never put my needs before my students or even colleagues. As I approach the big 40 and being alone, I realized that as much as I love my job and love my students, I need to put myself first. I just don't know how to be the educator and personal human being that I need to be in my life.

My primary goal for 2011 is to start putting myself first and work on ME as a human. To be happy. Sounds so simple. But it's not simple. At least for me.

Stay tuned . . . . . . .

i know the feeling. i'm doing something similar this year, by not working at home as much etc. Our lives are MORE than our job.

Hi M-Dawg,
I don't know if you are still blogging or not but I did a search on teaching the French Revolution and your blog came up. I am presently completing my Master's Degree and am writing a Drama-in-Education project on the French Revolution. If you still have the info. that you e-mailed to the others a couple of years ago (wow), I would love to have it. Thanks so much! Michelle in Canada (iamateapot@yahoo.com).
