I'm going back to being a hobbyist.... - Page 6

post #76 of 192
My nephew is a high school history teacher, and he absolutely loves it. I am sure that you will find it very rewarding as well. I'm happy you were able to get the grant. That's fantastic. Good luck!

Wow...hell has frozen over and pigs are flying everywhere. Never in a million ...no gazillion years would I have ever thought to hear this...
You know my first Bachelors degree was in Home Economics Teaching (which I never went into after ) and an Associates in Food Management( which I used for 10 yrs before becoming an RN). I despised my student teaching time so never taught. I give you mucho kudo's for wanting to teach and you will find being of a mature age you have an advantage over these teeny boppers...lol.

Good luck Deb

What can I possibly add that others haven't already expressed? Shock, abandonment (then relief) and finally acceptance. ha ha. You really surprised us.

You're simply THE BEST. Sometimes, I wished I knew you in real life so I could hug you. You've made me feel hopeful many times in the last (very) few months that I've been on CC. So, in short, you're a special gift to us and I'm genuinely happy for YOU. God bless you.

p.s. "Dr. Debi" ....sounds nice. I hope you'll realize all your dreams.

Condolences? Hah! Condolences to the middle schoolers with their pipe dreams of bamboozling every teacher they come in contact with and their steadfast refusal to do something as un-cool as actually getting interested in a subject.

Debi, you've been my teacher for the last year (and will be for many years to come, I hope) and this may be the most valuable lesson you've taught me: take care of your health and follow your heart's desires.

God bless you Debi you will do wonderful. I know it was a tough decision and I worked in catering it is hard work. To much on you physically but like you said you are not going any where you will still be with us. thumbs_up.gif

Wow, when I opened this thread, Debi, your post was the last thing I expected to read! I am very excited for you though. Education is a wonderful thing and you have shown all of us here on CC that you are an excellent teacher so you will go far! I started out in education as a teacher and have since moved into the role of an Educational Diagnostician. I love working with children. It is very fulfilling!

This student is still learning too so I will be looking for your posts on the board as they are always so helpful and full of information and honesty! icon_biggrin.gif

I'm relatively new to this forum but I have to say that I have learned so much from you and wish you TONS OF LUCK in your new adventure!!
You could teach "How to Watch Paint Dry 101" and people would line up to take the class!
Those are some lucky students!
Maybe we'll see you on the Food Network judging a contest?!!

So crazy to hear!!! I know I look forward to seeing your posts often...so I'm glad to hear you'll still be entertaining/teaching us! (Thanks, BTW!) I am the opposite of a history buff, but if you're half as interesting teaching history as you are on here, then some kids are going to be extremely lucky! Best of luck to you and your new (hopefully pain-free) adventures!!!

I admire you for taking a very tough situation and turning it into a new adventure and way of life for yourself. You really seem to be the type of person that will give it your all and succeed in whatever you try.
I love reading your posts on CC and am so glad you will still be here.

wow! sounds like you have a lot going on! im sure you'll be finding this change refreshing....

but you should TOTALLY do a book!

you have a flair for interesting writing and clever anecdotes.... seriously, you could make a bundle and help a lot of people at the same time!

Congrats on the grant and deciding to go back to school! I hope the neck pain isn't as severe for you! So glad you're not leaving CC, I know I, for one, look forward to reading your posts. I agree with a PP, I never liked history class, but I bet I'd have paid more attention with you as a teacher, lol!

Oh, and you can't change your AV, it's so totally the image we all have of you!

Congrats again!!!

Debi...wear the sweaters.

And please never leave CC. Like many other posters, I look for your posts first. You are the CC goddess!

Enjoy this wonderful journey...
