Hello and thanks for stopping by!

Teaching is an incredibly taxing job, so much so that I’m opening myself to the possibility of leaving it behind before I break–physically, cognitively and emotionally. And, while I try to keep a professional demeanor and positive attitude (no easy task!) at work, sometimes a guy just has to get things off his chest!

The posts that follow are my thoughts (and musings) on what my life as an English teacher has been like, and why I’m ready to take my life in a different direction.

I don’t intend to speak for all teachers, nor will I pretend that my experience is necessarily the norm in public schools throughout the nation. This is simply the portrait of an individual who had the best of intentions, but isn’t quite making it in education.

I hope you enjoy.
