The last day of school is 25 days away, and when I say the last day, I mean the very last! The decision I made was to resign from teaching to race my bike full time for a year or two (or three or ten, who knows!).
This decision wasn't made lightly, it's been in the back of my mind for at least a year because Brendan has wanted this for about that long, and I am still processing what it means. Sometimes I am elated to be following a dream that will expire if I wait too long. Another part of me is pretty scared to leave a normal, comfortable job in which I am pretty unlikely to fail to take up a very unconventional job at which I may very well fail. I will miss the Algebra 1 and Applied Calculus students who make me laugh, test my patience and make me so proud every day, but the best part is that I can always go back to that. There will always be cute 9th graders who need to learn Algebra, and this is my one shot at giving bike racing my all!
|Starting June 18 it's going to be racing bikes all day eer day!|
So, who wants to spend September, October and November in Moab/St George/Sedona/Prescott/ALL THE FUN PLACES!!!! with me? :)
