Okay so the title is a little crazy but I discovered something last night. I teach a CCD class on Wednesday nights. For those who don't know what a CCD class is (totally understandable). Its' original name was the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine. It was an association established in the 1500s for the purpose of providing religious education. Nowadays CCD is the religious teaching program of the Catholic Church.
So anyways onto my fix. After my class last night I realized that I should have been a teacher. But because everyone in my family seemed to be a teacher, I needed to be different. So that was my choice and I realized my last semester in college that my choice was not who I was. But there was no turning back. And I don't think I would have enjoyed teaching everyday as much as I enjoy my Wednesday night 7th grade class. So this is my fix, my way of feeding that need or want to teach.
I am really wild and sometimes wonder if I am getting anything across, if their minds are running or are they just thinking this lady is crazy and I want to go home. Who knows, but for the next several weeks they will be a part of the fix I need to fulfill some inner part of me who always wanted to be a teacher. The things we do to torture children.
This is another part of my need for balance. My once a week fix keeps me balanced with the need of teaching fulfilled and the rest of the time fulfilled with many other random things.
