Decision Made

March 14th, 2013 at 02:32 pm

You guys are so smart, and thank you for the advice, it was right on! Regarding my last blog post, I spoke with my director and I did decline to teach the summer course. We spoke at length about finding a second person to teach the class, and agreed that should be a priority.
Some of you pointed out that my students really expect and deserve an instructor who can give 100%, and I certainly would not be able to do that this summer. So I will be recharging my battery and will be good to go for Fall! It is also true that I was having trouble "letting go" of this class a little, and realized that adding a second instructor would really help with continuing to grow this course without me stretching myself so thin.

On the financial front, I remain on course with my goals. I did some shopping last weekend at CVS with my swagbucks $100 gift card. They had some good sales so I stocked up on shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, deodorant, laundry soap, and some vitamins. I only spent about $40, so back I go this weekend for paper goods, which weren't on sale last weekend, but are this weekend. By the end of March I should be able to cash in for another $50 gift card.

    You sound relieved to have that burden off your shoulders for the summer. So it is almost certainly a good decision.

    Good for you. You can come back in the fall recharged and ready to do an even better job.

    I think that was a really wise decision that will lead to a MUCH better summer for you! The course is still your baby, since you developed it, and the students in the Fall will have the insurance of getting an unexhausted instructor in their semester. Good going. Smile Jerry
