Uli Has Something to Say
A New Beginning?Hi, Uli! It sounds like you have made some major changes in your life and in schools, too. Why do you find yourself fighting the "tide" of culture? Why not just go with the flow? I remember when I moved to another state and went from private to public school - now there's a change for an educator! I went to asking, "What 4 year college will you be attending?" to "So, you're hoping to get a job at the local diner washing dishes?" It was dramatic for me but I found that the pace was alright after a while because I was getting older and needed the "slow down and go no where" attitude. Everything will work out - there's a reason why you're where you are - children always need that special person and I believe you're one special teacher!
How about other members? Have you experienced Uli's "change in culture" and are wondering what you've gotting into??? Let us hear from you. Any advice you can share would be grateful.
