… another opens.
One door has been pretty squarely closed. I was informed last week that my position at CHS will not be renewed in the fall. I’m still reeling from that announcement (I absolutely DID NOT see it coming and was, in fact, told on numerous occasions and by more than one person that it wasn’t), and I’m not nearly clear-headed enough to write about it yet, but I will.
For now, I’m going day-to-day. I cleaned out my classroom today; my entire professional life is now taking up my husband’s half of the garage. I’m going to email my boss at Local U. to let him know that my availability to teach freshman English has just opened up, and I’ll be submitting a couple of (probably too late) applications to a couple of places, though I expect to have a pretty light schedule for the next school year; I can’t imagine I’ll find a position this late in the game.
Regardless, I’m holding myself open to whatever possibilities are in store for me, and trying to reestablish my center.
