I was offered the position at my alma mater which boasts an all-school magnet program in the arts and humanties. As a student I was in both magnets and loved my high school. One of the classes I am slated to teach is called “Novels” and I will be allowed to design my own curriculum for this particular class!
I have mixed emotions. It will be hard to leave the dsyfunctional place I am currently at. It is an evil I know. At least four of my current colleagues are going with me, so I am not completely nostalgic about leaving. But I am a little afraid and nervous to be in a new environment with a new boss and a new set of expectations. I hope I am not jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire. Wish me luck!
