If you’ve been following along with the Zielske Family Story for the past year, you’ll know that Dan just completed his first year as an elementary school teacher, leaving behind a 27-year career in the coffee biz, a biz that kept this family with food on our table, health insurance cards in our pockets and a steady supply of superb caffeinated products at our disposal.
Following an exciting and enriching albeit exhausting first year of teaching 5th grade, Dan’s contract was not renewed because of declining enrollment. There simply weren’t enough incoming 5th graders to warrant a third teacher. He was the third teacher.
Luckily, he had a lot of fellow teachers and a principal or two in his corner, and I am thrilled to tell you that he has just accepted a 6th grade position in the same district.
We are both so relieved to know what he will be doing for the 2017-2018 school year.
And now, honey, you kick your feet up, get caught up on all those books you’ve been wanting to read and ENJOY your summer. This changing careers in midlife is not for the faint of heart and you are meeting it with aplomb!
