But I'm moving again. I'm moving back into a curriculum director position at a nearby district.
It wasn't a decision I made lightly. I was more than content to stay in the classroom (and I think I will always be content to be in a classroom teaching smaller humans how to learn), but I was pressured to apply for the curriculum director position by a few colleagues as well as my husband. This is pretty much how the conversation went when I was approached about applying:
Them: ("You should apply. You could help touch so many more students in that role. You have a lot to offer. You should apply.") x 3 bazillion times
Me: (After the 3 bazillion and oneth time) ALRIGHT ALREADY! I'll apply if you will STOP TELLING ME TO APPLY.
So, I applied. And then I forgot that I had applied (mainly because everyone then quit hassling me about applying). Until a call came for me in February about an interview. And to the interview I went. And then another call came about another interview....and all of a sudden I was a curriculum director again.
I agonized over leaving the classroom. But something about this position feels right. And when something feels right, I go for it.
However, I could do without moving all my stuff out of one space and into another again. If anyone would like to help with that, just let me know.
