Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 9, 2:01 PM

Being ready to move on is essential. When I left teaching, it was the right time. I was able to let go. I miss the classroom, but not the micro-managing, the lack of integrity, the adult politics, etc. that went on. There was little choice in my professional development. School is a fiefdom operating under the dictates of those furthest removed from classrooms. That I was happy to shed myself of and was ready to do so without bitterness or rancour. Sadness was there, because I know children need something different than what is happening.
