From College Back to the Classroom
Let’s be real for a second. College is about getting that tiny, square, beige piece of FedEx paper with your name on it.
It comes to you after four years of tears, tantrums and all nighters. Post graduation, you may get that dream job that you’ve worked tirelessly hard for, or end up washing dishes at your local Applebee’s. Whatever the outcome, it’s social protocol that you get that degree.
I shouldn’t be so cynical. I enjoyed my classes and my major, I still have fun with the life-long friends I met over those 4 years. Yes, I AM relieved that those 4 years led me to a career right out of college. There are just some nights where being a well-known published author is a way better deal. Scratch that; every night.
As a post-graduate elementary school teacher, I come fully prepared to share with you the adventures of school, my short stories and poetry, as well as my personal life. It may not make you a millionaire, but it might still tickle you in that special place.
