‘Just take it on’, was what ran through my mind as I entered my classroom this morning. ‘Just walk in and take back what’s yours’. So I did just that…I began to fill my classroom with cheerful additions and projects. If that’s what my superiors want, they will get it. Mine (and my students’) creations, and no one else’s.
Reaching for your own personal achievement comes with its criticisms, and that’s okay. It’s a challenge, but it’s not my first time handling tension. I just need to follow my threaded path. Just take it on, and keep moving.
