I started thinking about my job the other day. I know it’s summer holidays but I am a teacher, after all, and we never really stop thinking about our jobs. What started me thinking about all the stories I have to share was when rhis photo showed up in my facebook feed today.
It reminded me of what has been going on in my professional life these past few months, even though I haven’t been in the classroom since mid-June. As I write this, I am on summer holidays, but 3 weeks before the end of the school year, last June, my union went on a full scale strike due to some horrific working conditions and some punitive measures imposed upon us as a union during our contract negotiations. There is no end in sight as our employer, the government, is refusing to come to the table. So we don’t know when we will be back in the classroom. I had a huge panic about money and so I have been working on producing new products for my store, joining forums, group Pinterest boards, posting on facebook and twitter – etc, etc, etc. So my plan is that starting next week I will be sharing stories from my career. There are a lot of them. Some are really tragic, and some are really funny and I hope that comes across when I write. You see I’m not much of a writer, and this is really tough, but if I humanize my blog a bit, with some stories, then maybe more readers will stop by for a visit. If you met me in real life you’d realize I have no problem talking about my job, so now I’m going to sit down and write about it. Please check back soon for more stories – or follow me on bloglovin’ or facebook – you can find my link above.
Thanks for stopping by today.
