Here Goes Nothing

Well, it’s official. As of today, I am no longer a teacher.

I loved my school, my coworkers, my principal, and my kids, so don’t get the idea that I left because of any of them. But, I began to realize that I really needed to do something else. I had so many passions and desires that were constantly going unrealized. I was able to tap into some of my creativity within my classroom and the many other events and organizations that I was a part of in the school, but teaching is most definitely a full-time job, and it really didn’t allow for much else.

Then, the perfect opportunity presented itself. I will still be able to help people to realize their potential and pursue their goals. It will also allow me to express myself creatively through photography, design, and writing. I will get to engage people through social media and foster online communities. It requires a LOT of consistent and organized communication which I both enjoy and am good at.

So, after six years of teaching, four of them at Landmark, I am saying goodbye and heading into a new adventure. It’s terrifying and thrilling and stressful and relieving… But mostly it is so clearly my next step, and I’m very thankful for this incredible opportunity. It’s already such a culture shock to move from the teaching world to the business world, but the more I learn, the more it’s clear that I made the right choice.

Thanks for reading this update from the new Marketing Assistant at Ross Medical Education Center! Those of you I am leaving behind, please feel free to add me on Facebook or shoot me an email! I am very sad to say goodbye but so excited for what this next chapter holds!
