This post is a total downer and I won’t think less of you if you don’t want to read about my lemons…. But come back tomorrow, I’ll be giving you CHOCOLATE BANANA CHIA SEED BITES! 🙂
Welp readers, I try my best to be happy all the time, not just on the blog.… but life in general….. When the husband and I got home on Saturday/Sunday, life handed us lemons.
This would be the reason for no post yesterday. I was just too stressed to add another thing to the growing list that is sitting on the kitchen table.
This is the bowl of lemons:
There is a man, let’s call him Bob for the sake of the blog…. Bob is a teacher in our district and around the husband’s age (28-29ish). We are acquaintances but not really friends. Bob made a huge personal mistake this year regarding a student… We knew very little about what Bob was doing, in fact most of it was assumptions.…. but we knew that if it was happening, it wasn’t right. And we had to let our administration know of what was going on for the best interests of everyone. The husband did what was hard and let our bosses know all that we knew so that the fault wouldn’t be on us or our district.
We tried to do the right thing in the name of the teaching profession and the kids we teach. This was months ago….
After we arrived home, the husband got the mail and there was a letter addressed to the two of us, no return address…. This letter made horrific comments about our moral character and maturity. It stated that we should resign from our positions immediately because of Bob’s mistake. The letter says that we knew of what Bob was doing and chose not tell the administration and to do nothing about it. That we condoned Bob’s actions… This letter was not signed, it was anonymous.
Newsflash: We told the administration!!! We did something about it! We did everything in our power to make sure the right thing was being done!
After I read the letter I proceeded to cry my eyes out and hyperventilate for quite some time. I am so hurt that someone is spreading things that are truly against every fiber of my being!
Someone is HIGHLY misinformed and spreading things that are against all of my character and moral traits. I just want to scream: “I am Julie! I go to church! I eat my vegetables! I have never even littered! I give my heart and soul to teaching kids! …And you’re saying THIS about ME?!?” ….but because this horrific letter was anonymous, I have no one to tell this to. Someone will just be saying horrible things about me and the husband. It’s killing me…..
Our administration, superintendent, principal, and school board are *so* upset that someone is dragging our name through the mud when we tried to do the right thing.
