One Foot Out of the Grave

Ever the positive post, I wanted to summarise the passing of 2016 and the beginning of 2017. If I was going to sum up how 2016 was for me I would say “PROGRESS”

These past few years I have strived to eventually leave the teaching profession and in some respects I’ve tried to do this under my own steam. Towards the end of 2016 I finally let the Lord lead this transition and I have ended up taking on a fixed term role with a large International software company.

The experience has been fantastic – I am finally out of the classroom and yet gaining so much which would help a student when covering the theory element of their Computer Science/ICT exams – should I return to the classroom.

My work life balance is significantly better than the 16 years as a teacher even a supply teacher. My health has improved, mentally and physically. There are not as many days where I have felt mentally and physically drained. So, 2016 has ended with me believing that my goals and dreams are still reachable (through Christ who strengthens me).

It is with excited anticipation that I therefore look forward to 2017. When this current contract ends I know and I trust God that I will be placed in a further environment where I can pursue the book and the animation unhindered but also have the resources to make my own children’s lives more enriching and enjoyable.

Onwards and upwards into 2017!
