I teach Kinder at a Title I school and can 'buy out' years of service to add to my retirement. I am buying out the service now. I figure if I stay it will be icing on the cake, however, I am really considering just walking away. My colleague is a very negative, hateful person who works hard to try to get me in trouble. I also work with Title I kids (that says it all). I still want to work but not in the classroom. I am pursuing an on-line program in Instructional Design and Adult Learning. I am tired of the evaluations, paperwork, testing, behavior issues (ie. feral children). I fear I will regret this and miss the kids (the non-feral children that is). Has anyone else felt the same way? I dont post this on FB because of other teachers who know me on FB and I don't want to let the cat out of the bag.... Thanks in advance!
