I did it. Today at work, I put in my 2 weeks notice.
I won’t be teaching anymore after this month.
I really did it. I’m shook.
To Whom It May Concern,
Throughout this school year, I had been forced to miss several days for music commitments, and though I love teaching and music equally, I feel that I am doing the school and students a disservice by not being able to commit to a full time schedule. Because of this, it is with great sorrow and regret that I announce my resignation from my position as middle school English and Social Studies teacher. I will attempt to chase my dream of becoming a full-time musician.
I am extremely grateful to administration the entire staff for giving me an opportunity, and most importantly, a family. I optimistically look forward to the next endeavor and wherever it takes me, but I am hopeful that my you, my family and colleagues, will be optimistic and supportive as well. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
wow. I can’t believe I typed that. but I do believe it’s time.
With everything going on around me, it’s getting too difficult to maintain both at (what I believe to be) a high level. So, I’m taking the ultimate leap of faith and trying my hand at music full time.
So I set up a donation system for those of you who want to help keep the studio lights on… I’m super grateful in advance, and I’ll be sending out gifts to donors all throughout the year, so keep an eye out.
*if you wanna mail me something, like coupons or Ramen noodles, get @ me for the P.O. Box address, haha.
I’m thankful of all the love I’ve gotten thus far, and I think it’ll continue, but it’s a scary thought leaving behind the only consistent thing you’ve had in your life. so yeah, I’m scared…cautiously optimistic, if you will.
I know it won’t be easy. Hey, who knows, maybe it won’t last…but one thing’s for sure. I won’t stop teaching. Thank you for your ears and continued support during this crazy transition period.
