The Retrospect; A Career in a Paragraph

Listen here for the podcast of this post:

As some of you know, I’ll be retiring from public education at the end of this month. I’ve spent 26 years in NM school systems. I started teaching at Onate High School in 1995, right after completing my Bachelors Degree. I taught special education, specifically something called C-level English. (This was the dark ages before inclusion setting caught on.) Most of my students were about as old as I was. Then I married the best guy and moved to Ruidoso. I spent the next 19 years there as a teacher, coach, principal, and college instructor. Those were incredibly fast and developmental years. Finally landing in Alamogordo where I spent the last of my career as a high school AP, district test coordinator (PARCC was almost the end of us all) and director of curriculum and instruction. Moving to NMSUA in January 2019 was one of the best choices I made in my career. That’s where this story ends, and the next one begins. Stay tuned for the next adventure. It will be even better.
