Yet another young teacher says so long to a big-city district. Sam of clean up on aisle of life:
In many ways I feel that a part of my spirit, and maybe even my heart, has been broken by the mess of a system that is the [New York] DOE.
Happily, she won't be leaving education entirely but is starting as a behavior therapist for autistic children. Sadly (for us), as part of this life change, she's also saying goodbye to her blog--which was a good one. Good luck, Sam. Thanks for sharing your teaching life.
