Unexpected Unemployment

So it seems that I am currently unemployed.  I didn't want to go along with some things I didn't believe were right and it was just easier to get rid of me.  Oh well... Now what to do?  I thought I would rush out and find another job, but after a week I realize that I am never going to fall into line with administrators looking to make a name for themselves at the expense of children, teachers or anyone else, for that matter.  If I get another job like the ones I've had for the past 10 years, the job I knew I was meant for from the age of 9, there's always going to be someone telling me to do things I don't believe in, someone making decisions based on what they want rather that what is best for children.  At the end of the day I have to be able to look at myself in the mirror and know that I always do what is right for kids.

Soooo now what???  It occurs to me that my lifestyle, how I view myself, and my place in this world is all changing.  I seem to be a some crossroads in my life.  I grew up knowing I would always be a teacher and I would never, ever be a house wife or anything oppressed.  Now, I'm not so sure who I am or what to do next.  This is my journey.  I'm not sure where it will lead, but I'm going to find out.  Feel free to come along.
