Ten years ago yesterday, I made this post.
Today, I got news that the journey down that road has come to an end.
Due to budget cuts and massive staffing issues at the middle school, I will no longer be able to teach Quest English 8.
I wanted to post a huge post, but I’m just flat-out exhausted and devastated. Teaching Quest 8 has been the most meaningful part of my school days for the last decade and I would have done it for years into the future.
Losing this opportunity has been a huge shock for me and comes at a time of real professional loss and dissatisfaction.
I’ve lost yearbook, Journalism 2, and now Quest 8. Next year, who will I be?
