I was pulled into a meeting Friday afternoon before school was finished for the day. There was a meeting of the board of trustees and a decision was made concerning budget cuts and “sacrifices” they had to make to ensure the school had its money to continue operations. So the tall and short of it is that my two lead teachers told me in what was a very tearful conversation between all three of us that I will be let go at the end of the school year. I have an incredible mixed bag of emotions. I am incredibly angry at the establishment and how it is removed from the educational aspect of the school and its continued desire to make more money. It was hard for me to even concentrate on the rest of the day. At the same time I realized that this was a chance at a new start despite not even really get a chance to even begin at my school. So now I have new goals that are moving forward. I look at everything as an opportunity to make my life better. So this isn’t goodbye to my old school, this isn’t completely sad, this is just me now, more than ever, ready to start my new life!
