Surrender to the Season

I’m excited to be a guest blogger at Always Orange today!  I invite you to click on over to read my brand new post, and stick around to read some of the thoughts of my friend and former co-worker Alicia. A gifted teacher, avid reader and deep thinker, Alicia has been an example to me both personally and professionally. She and her family now live and work at a boarding school in the Northeast, and I’ve enjoyed keeping up with their adventures through her blog.  

Before I began staying at home full-time with my kids, I spent five happy years teaching fourth grade. After I left my job when my daughter was nine months old, people kept asking if I missed the classroom (three years later, I still get this question from time to time). It took me a long time to become comfortable with my answer: I miss it terribly, but I don’t want to go back now.
