Last month was probably my last month teaching a decision that has caused me a great deal of sadness. I will miss the children a great deal… the administration, not so much. Due to all of the stress from my unwarranted suspension and termination my doctors advised me to remove myself from the school districts reach.
I have enough sick leave to last me through the end of the year, so I have time to assess my condition before the summer break. I will honest with you, in the last couple of weeks my blood pressure has been declining significantly and I have had no heart palpitations. What a relief.
There were those that believed I was simply being paranoid, however I was advised by my doctor that it is not paranoia when they really are out to get you.
Think about it – The school district attempted to have me thrown in jail for a felony when all of the time they had the video proof displaying my innocence. I believe they thought I would merely quit and go away. If they could attempt that with a video what would prevent them from coming after me again with all of their ducks in a row.
Without a video and a couple of witnesses they could make just about anything up. It is a sad scenario, but we live in a sad immoral world right now where individuals hold grudges and would do anything to win or retaliate. Jail is one place I would not fare well in.
I sincerely would like to thank all of those who supported and backed me through this entire ordeal and rest assured, although I may end up retiring… I will not go away. I am continuing my effort in attaining a book agent for the rewrite of my book. I have had a few nibbles and if it is God’s will… it will be done.
