I know we featured this post in our sliders on the homepage and sent it out through our social media on Twitter and Facebook, but it really is a great story. If you haven’t read it yet, this post is a must read from a Delta CM on why he stayed in TFA, even though everything seemed to be going wrong.
For first years who are struggling and on the verge of leaving their position as I was this time last year, find someone with whom you can relate to and share your hopes and dreams- both in-progress and realized, dashed or otherwise. This person could be your PD/MTLD (officially or unofficially), your current roommate or institute buddy, a colleague from school or even someone who doesn’t teach and is indifferent towards TFA, but cares about you and your well-being. Whoever it may be, just don’t suffer in silence alone. Take the time to talk it out, so you can work it out.
