Recently I've started doing some substitute teaching. It's really funny to me how many people don't realize that I am a teacher. Of course, I have to cut them some slack, since it has been 11 years...but it's odd to me because I consider that a big part of my experience and a big part of who I am as a parent and as a person. Isn't it funny that that could be such a big part of me, and so many people had no idea. Weird.
I've been thinking a lot lately about whether or not I should go back to teaching full time. I really love teaching. But I don't really know if I want to work away from home every day. The money is enticing. The time, I'm not so sure about.
