weekly photo challenge: escape

Escape.

This word has been floating around in my head for a while as it’s been something I have been trying to do. Escape the routine. Escape boredom. Escape my own stubbornness to step away from the (very) comfortable and try something new.

The job I interviewed for last week was offered to me this week. It’s exciting, scary, new, tremendously challenging…everything I need in a new job. I would still be connected to students, I would oversee teachers, curricula writing, training, budgets (or lack thereof) / grant-writing and issues I cannot yet imagine. I would be able to fight for needed policy changes, offer support to teachers who have been standing alone for too long and continue to defend the public schools in which I so strongly believe. All of which could have a positive impact on students… and isn’t that the point of an education?

Today, I would rather be on that boat. In the middle of this quiet lake. Gently paddling along.
Instead I have a choice to make.
