I taught all day Kindergarten in 2016-17 and Pre-K in summer school. In the fall of 2017 I taught first grade and am currently in this position. I have an at will contract and will provide 10 days notice when I find another job. After a great deal of soul searching I have decided that I no longer want to be a classroom teacher. The passion that I once had for this profession is gone and I have decided to pursue other interests.
