Y'all....4 years ago this week I was going through major changes. I had just finished up with my high school teaching position, I was officially graduating from GSU and also starting my new position as an elementary school art teacher at 2 different section 8 title 1 schools........I had no idea what I was doing (or how I was to pay my rent that month), but I was confident I was headed the right direction and felt like for the first time I was in harmony with my life. (And not the lost creative soul I normally felt like.)
Well, it's been a CRAZY 4 years at my school and I've learned and grown more as a person than I thought was possible. This job has taught me so much and shown me just how passionate + resilient I can be. I am so thankful for all I have learned about people, teaching, myself and life overall! I have more respect for the teaching profession than any other out there (it's not for the faint of heart)!
But all good things must end, isn't that how it goes?! Well not to be dramatic but....💁🏼
This will be my last week teaching in the classroom. I've decided it's time for me to confidently walk in the direction that my dreams are taking me now. I knew this year would be my last, as this past year I have spread myself WAY too thin. However, an opportunity too good to pass up has came about, and I'm taking it!!! So that means I'm leaving a little earlier than expected! (Yes, I'm staying in Atl)
Life is such a crazy and scary ride people!...but I've learned to be bold and go after the things that seems the scariest (and most unrealistic at times) to me...because they truly are the most rewarding, in oh so many ways!
So, I thought it was time to share this news with you all- as you may not know it....but those of you who have read, support and followed along with this blog since I started it in 2013, are a HUGE factor in making all these dreams of mine come true. On my lowest hardest days this space, this community gave me a place to turn to and express myself freely and I could never express how much that means to me. 😁😘💕
So THANK YOU + happy Monday!!! :) And cheers to living the life we have always imagined! 🍻💕
And yuh know, I'll be taking on more freelance projects now soooo...... HIRE ME and let me help your vision come to life!😘😁💕
