I know that I run a risk having a blog and being a teacher.
I try to use my maiden name for writing and my married name for teaching, but sometimes this is not enough. Some students found the online me today.
Teaching can be all consuming. Papers to grade at night, lessons to plan on the weekends, after school events to coordinate, parents texting and calling at all hours. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job (most of the time), but I also need a separation of school and home.
So, tonight, when I discovered that I had been discovered, I was pretty disappointed.
Sometimes I need a little break to be me, even if it’s public, on the internet, in pursuit of my other passion, writing.
Hopefully, they found me so boring that they don’t come back…
