So. You are ready to leave education. What’s next?
Many educators are turning a new leaf as the covid pandemic adds additional stress and strain on teachers and learners. Just like an addiction the first step is stating that you have a problem.

While the road has been rocky and will continue to be, it is only ourselves we can rely on to create the world and life that we want.
Often, it takes a season of transition to remind us of our goals. As a school teacher, the last day of school and the first day are often the hardest moments for reflection. As I sit in my classroom for the final time this year, I am reminded of all that I hoped to achieve…
