Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap
Jan 05 2012

Looking ahead to year 3

It’s the second semester of my second year, and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have begun to seriously consider different options for employment/school next year. As I think about what I will be doing next year, there is one thing that scares me: will I be bored?

The one part of teaching I have appreciated 100% of the time is that it is never boring. I am always busy and am never sitting at a desk counting down the minutes until 5:00pm. The kids are entertaining, whether it’s for something good or bad, and I am always juggling a dozen different things at once.

Now I am looking into research assistant positions and waiting to hear back from PhD programs. I have a genuine fear: will I be bored?
