piggyback on not wanting to teach

Hi,

After about 20 years working in various educational jobs I have finally made a decision and have left the classroom. It feels good and bad at the same time. For me, medical issues prevent me from being effective. Seeing my doctor today. I will miss the support of PT, but I am not a teacher anymore.

If anyone has made the same move please write to me. I am in need of support.

I pray to God to help me find a way to find myself again.

I left for medical reasons years ago and still lurk. There are many posters that I would miss if I didn't.

I left a year ago for health related issues. I have not looked back. I still linger on the PT site just because I feel like so may of us are friends (in a strange sort of way) and I like to keep up with what's happening. You can PM me anytime. I'd be happy to chat.

First.....congrats on your decision. I'm sure it was difficult and there will be things you miss....but if medical issues are there...you have to put yourself first....you did the right thing! Please continue to stay on PT....it's a great support system and we all understand where you've come from and perhaps can help you on the road you are traveling now! You're never alone....just remember that. Good luck and here's to finding peace and joy in life again!

I left the classroom too, but I have felt more than welcomed! I still am in education, but in a different role. You're just in a different role now too!
