I hate pickles.
After much and much and much and much thought, I made a decision.
"I'm sorry Le Cordon Bleu, you are CHOPPED. Please pack up your utensils and go home."
You don't know how hard it was to make that decision. My heart (and my tummy, and my hubby's tummy) was saying, "Cook your heart out, Sunshine!" but My brain was saying different. I wanted to follow my dreams (SO BAD) but it's not in the cards right now... the debit cards more specifically.
So, I chose my first love, Teaching. It truly is my first passion and truth be told, I lost some of that last year.
But this is a new year, and I want to reignite my passion again. I'm going to set this place on FI-YA! (not literally... I would never do that) I want to be a revolutionary... a force to be reckoned with....in the classroom and in the kitchen! WATCH OUT NOW!
I met my principal today and I could NOT have asked for a more supportive guy. Through and Through. And he gave me an iPad to boot! (It's for a reading program)
To make this situation that much better, he told me that if an opportunity arises where I can move back to Elementary mid-year, he would give me his blessing. My heart was about to jump out of my chest and hug him. I think if I cried like I wanted to, he would've thought I was a weirdo. I went home from our meeting feeling like I made the right decision.
I am now a Middle School English Language Development Teacher (Math, Study Skills, and Reading)
Now I can take out my teacher tools and magic dust....and clean out our guest room.
Cooking School will always be there for me.... I will put my Chef dream aside (not away).
Until then...when I'm not in my classroom, you can find me here....
Happy. Cooking in my Kitchen.
**Thank you to all my family and friends (blog ones included) for all of your support through it all. Listening to me bitch and moan? Why are you still loving me?
And to my patient and supportive Husband, where ever this road will take me... I want nothing more than you by my side...oh and can you drive? I hate driving. ***
