Dear DC Teacher Chic,

Dear DC Teacher Chic,

I read your blog not just occasionally, I drop by whenever I do my blog hopping which is as often as I post my entries in my blog. I follow your blog because I believe in many things that you say and do...until now. We came to DCPS almost at the same time, this is going to be my 6th year.

When I met you at the WTU Office months ago when I let you in during your demo, I saw a teacher who is a fighter, who fights not just for herself but more so for the students she serves. I went through MAJOR challenges, same things that I read in most DCPS teachers' blogs, and WORSE. But my story is another story.

I cannot blame you for your decision. I wish you'll find what your heart is searching for. With me, quitting (or leaving) never crossed my mind. I have SURVIVED teaching in DCPS and will continue to teach because I believe that "tough times never last but tough people do" (this book changed me, it's a must-read!). I know my students need me, and I will stay with them because I believe that I can make a difference.

I wish you all the best. I hope to see you again in the future...happier and more successful. Email me anytime or drop a message in my blog.
