More Difficult Conversations

Originally written 6/2/13

I had to tell my principal & assistant principal that it was likely I would not be back in the fall. These two wonderful ladies and I have formed a bond.  They are there to help when I need it, and they see the fun, hilarity, and humility that comes with working in an elementary school.

I’ve broached the topic of moving to London with them earlier in the school year, and it went something like what I expected the conversation with our parents to go.  They were not happy about the idea, but understood that the opportunity to live abroad does not come around every day.  The London discussion had been quiet for a few months until late last week.

It wasn’t pretty.

We are all working through it together, and I am trying my hardest to make a smooth exit.  Now when I see my principal & assistant principal either give me a sad face or the stink eye.

*The news shared in this blog posts was originally written many months ago.  We were not ready to share the news with the world at that time, so I added the original date the post was written at the top.
