For the first time ever I am dreading going back. Maybe its the fact that Evie has developed her personality, maybe I've gotten comfortable at home, maybe I don't want the drama involved with other teachers. But I beleive most of it is my definiton of myself has changed. I am Kim Sudkamp, mom and art teacher. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE teaching. I just found my priorities have slightly shifted. I can't leave teaching, I enjoy it so much. Moving forward I may not think of teaching 90% of the time, rather 70% of my free time.
