...and the beginning of another adventure. After seven years as an art and design teacher and character education coordinator I have made the hard decision of resigning. Although I am stepping down from an honorable position I plan to return to the field of education at a later time.
This decision was difficult because of the students. I have seen many classes and individuals come through our gates and it was my privilege to inspire, teach, and motivate them as much as they inspired, taught, and motivated me. They are the reason that I will consider returning to this profession later on.
For now I finally feel free. For two years now I have mentioned to my wife that sometimes I feel part of me is off in some grand adventure, exploring lands, or slaying dragons and here I sit. I wasn't bored, I was just in need of a new adventure. To expand, grow, and develop in other areas as I move forward in my career as a creative individual.
Today, before I had the chance to say goodbye to the room where I spent much of my time the movers had displaced much of what was within. The world continues on no matter of how many years spent in toil and joy. So must I continue on to the next adventure as I pursue other opportunities that have come along. I look forward to the next seven years...
