Teacher blogger (and certified night owl) Susan Graham posts a very thoughtful "open letter" to Mildly Melancholy, the young NYC teacher-blogger who - after a wrenching semester - was recently relieved of her position. Here's a part:

I’m sorry it didn’t work out for you. I notice that you are beginning to see teaching as something that happened to you once upon a time, but that doesn't mean it didn't matter. You’ve left the classroom and so even as I write, the thread that might have connected us is probably unraveling like the knitting of a thirteen year old Hedgehog. I’m sorry we didn’t get to talk about that. But mostly I’m sorry that we lose so many bright and funny and caring young teachers like you and I wonder what we can do to get more of you to stay.

I am also sorry to hear that it did not work out for you. I joined the Career Change Program to become a teacher and have heard that many new teachers leave after their first year.
