(continued from What's My Karma With Elementary?)
Even if my mind was set on becoming an IEP Facilitator again, I readily gave it up because I knew I was needed in the classroom.
What I wasn't prepared for was the idea of going back to an elementary school and being told - "Maria, if you want to stay with the district then you have no choice but to accept the position in that elementary school!" - really bothered me a lot! I simply could not take it!
God has given us all free will... and to be told that I have no choice, was a little bothersome.. don't I have a choice really? But I do have a choice, right?
BUT you know these were just excuses, right? I mean, I could always try again and see if the second time around would be better?
BUT you see, words have power. To be told, "You have no choice", well, my mind just couldn't accept!
SO, I tried to be responsible by talking to higher ups. I thought, maybe, I could change their minds but I failed. So, for the third time this year, I resigned.
Well, actually, since I wasn't given any contract yet, I informed them that I won't be pushing on with it. That same day, I accepted the offer from another district as an inclusion teacher in a middle school.
BUT then, maybe God has other plans, really! :)
