As I've gotten older my weeks are still pretty consistent. Work, try and relax after work, play on the internet. Weekends are for running errands and trying to catch up on rest. Every so often, I get to catch up with friends on the weekends or a night or two during the week.
Unfortunately, I wish the days weren't so consistent.
More fun, more planning to make things better in my life would be great.
I need to mix it up so that I can reach higher.
I feel behind on many levels.
I am not where I want to be with even simple things like hair growth, or with more complex things like family, and career.
I'm not sure where I want to be career-wise, but I know that I want more. I just need to figure out what that more is and then work out a plan of how to get that more.
This week during one of our professional development days, I had a revelation.
I realized that I am good at leading other teachers. I don't know what it is, but for some reason, when I talk, they all listen. This isn't the first time I have noticed this, but this time around, it really moved me as I looked around the room and saw all eyes on me. When I was finished sharing my views on what we were doing, there was not a sound. It was like they were all waiting to hear more and to gain more direction/advice.
I have been told by some of the admin in the building that I would make a great administrator, but I don't know if I would want to do all of the other stuff involved in being a principal. Perhaps something with social justice. I will have to look into those types of occupations.
