Through open doors

My horoscope for today says that I don't have to express my feelings right now, and I think that's good advice. Let me just say that I was voted off the board & a group of dedicated, level-headed people were replaced with a group that has no experience & seems to think that the board is like the PTA. I am afraid it will be a Pyrrhic victory for them, but I won't make that happen. I will pray for the school, because excellent public education for all children is what this is all about.

Right now, I am going back to doing the work I am paid to do. I'm not sure what I'll do with the thousands of hours and dollars I had been putting into the school. Maybe it's time to write. I need some alone time.

I am looking into another educational option for my son, although I'll leave him with his fine teacher until and unless there is fallout from the hateful. I always put the good of the school first when I was on the board. That doesn't mean I'll sacrifice my son.

And with this almost behind me, I am seeing lots and lots of open doors... I hope I choose well.

Big ((Hugs)), sorry for the drama. Your son's education is priority, your sanity too.

OMG this is just dreadful! I think a tell-all book would be a VERY good idea. What a buch of grateless basterds!

Wishing the best for your son and the students that they do come first.
Enjoy your free moment and breath and do something for yourself. Then i suspect you will be right back in there making sure the kids get a good education which is more than I can say for the new board elect.
