She's Leaving Home, Bye Bye

I was a full-time housewife for years. (I guess they'd call me a mom now.) I was a very shy person and I mostly to myself. I didn't think I had a lot to offer in of ideas and thoughts and I was too to start conversations with strangers because I was afraid I would myself by saying something dumb.

Then one year a local school was looking for someone to teach art to the children and they asked if I'd be to volunteer. At first I only taught one class a day but it was enough to me realize that I was not a total . In fact, I did such a good job that the next year they offered to let me teach full time.

My husband didn't want me to do it. He said: You told me it would only be one hour and now you're gone all day. I explained to him that I listened to him for twenty-five years and I was of always doing what I was told to do and that it was my to do something fun. That him up.

I ended up teaching for fifteen years. I such a good reputation that children came from other schools to join my class. The whole school a party when I retired. The children sang songs and a wonderful performance just for me. It made me cry.

a teacher was the best decision I ever made. Before I started teaching I sometimes wondered if I was going to waste my life the way my mom or my sister did. I'm really proud of myself for not that happen to me.
