I wished I could take a break from teaching without compromising my job as a teacher. You might be wondering how on earth could I do it. To quit working would be the only way to make my wish would come true. But it was not the way. Part of my job is tutoring or giving study assistance to Filipino students who have just arrived here. This is the kind of teaching job I want to be working on. While teaching Filipino should be in a group of students, tutoring is one-on-one instruction.
I did my last performance in teaching this week with the new teacher who will replace me. She will be starting to take over my classes next week. And I will be having more students to help soon. I’m grateful I have this kind of opportunity to switch my job. Both are related to teaching but to be carried out in different ways.
The reason why I needed to take sometime off from teaching was to get lighter loads and quality of performance. I find it challenging to extend study assistance to new students and help them adjust to the new environment. And when the time comes that they don’t need me anymore, I feel I have accomplished my job.
Good for you I hope this move suits you well, you have worked hard for it.
Thank you! It’s not permanent yet but I like the shift. I start early and come home early.

it happens to everyone, when I need a break from my job because I am starting to get burned out I give two week notice and take an unpaid personal day off. it works =)
It’s good to know you can do this at your job. I have thought of this sometimes, too.
Thanks a lot. I just felt I needed to keep away from paperworks all of a sudden, lol!
