I’ve thought about applying to be a consultant for College Board for a while now, but hesitated for a couple of reasons.
One, I wanted to have at least 10 years of teaching this course behind me. I passed that mark at the beginning of the school year.
Two, in my pre-op body, there was no way I’d have the stamina to teach intense 4-day workshops. I wouldn’t have been able to fly without needing an extra seat. I wouldn’t have been able to do all the standing, stooping, bending and walking around that would have been required.
Today I decided it was time to take the next step forward in my career as an educator. My confidence is bolstered, my body is healthier than it’s ever been, and I am ready for this challenge, should it present itself.
I can do this.
I’m looking forward to my first 5k. Even though I am not running, I think it will be a good time. Eventually I want to be able to run the entire way, but I’m not there yet.
So many good things going on in my world…I am truly blessed.
