About

IMG_0226Hello there!

Thank you for taking an interest in my blog. I am a high school English teacher, who has taught in a diverse, low-income community for six years. I also teach college-level writing as an adjunct at a local university.

Like the majority of teachers, I love my students, and while teaching them can be rewarding, I’ve come to understand that I would be happier in a different industry.

This blog follows my attempt to make sense of my situation and my journey to discovering a new purpose in life–to find my happiness and a new career. I hope that if you find a piece of yourself in my posts, you fill find them instrumental in helping you through your journey of self-discovery. Most of all, I hope that we will learn together as we explore what we have to offer and dive into the world of job searching.

I post as My Second Apple in order to protect the anonymity of my students and my school district.
