I was struggling with my own battle. I was laid off from my school. I wasn't sure to be mad at - and that was frustrating. But at the time, I was in a big funk. I knew I would be okay financially. I even knew I'd get over the initial pain. My brain was very philosophical, and I knew that God had a plan for me somewhere else.
I taught at the ALC last summer. I subbed at various classrooms and found out that subbing wasn't for me. Then, I heard about a courageous woman who was losing her battle with cancer and wasn't only having to leave behind her kids but her Spanish class as well.
I ended up teaching that Spanish class. I'm at the best school I've ever taught at. I love my job. I'm so happy here.
Sometimes, it's really hard to understand the journey. I have to learn to stop trying.
