Turn and face the strain

Where have I been?! At the beginning of the school year, I made all these resolutions -- about how I would teach, what I would teach, how the year would go. One of my resolutions was to keep up with my blog. Well, you can see how well that one went...and that might give you an idea of how the other ones went, too. A lot has changed this year...and I hate it when bloggers I read just disappear into the wilds of the Internet, so here is my update: Mr. Brave and I are expecting Baby Brave this summer, and I am taking the year off to (1) parent and (2) consider my career options. I've been teaching for five years, and I think I'm ready to move on. So if anyone knows of any job opportunities for a teacher/blogger/new mom, send them my way! And thanks for reading :)

Best of luck with the new baby! You ARE a great teacher and it's sad that you are leaving. But I am so proud of you and everything you've done! I finished my first year of teaching and discovered your blog while I was in college. Your blog helped to inspire me to take on teaching but prepared me for the challenges that I would face. Thank you so much and best of luck with everything!!

I wondered where you went. I used to read you all the time. I have noticed that many of the teacher blogs that I follow dryed up this last year, or the entries were way down, my own included. I think there are many factors involved, but it seems like we are all more stressed and I think there are a lot of reasons for that. The media seems to be on the attack, blaming teachers for so many things that aren't in their control. If you stay home with your baby, you are going to love it. Good luck.

I just stumbled upon your blog and hope that you leave it up for a while so that I can read your past posts. You will NEVER regret your decision to be home with Baby Brave. God Bless.

Congrats! Teachers being as second parents for sure had given you a good training ground to be the best parent you can be.
