NEW HAVEN,CT – Three weeks ago I was going to kill myself.
Morale at work is at an all time low earlier this year. Usually around April all the teachers are feeling “it”. The rushed nature of the school year. However, this year, we felt it on day one. Too many new initiatives. Too many new demands too soon. And pay, well, let’s just say: it is the inner city.
I doubled my therapy sessions. But then I found Occupy——. And now my time is spent creating something new. It occupies my mind. I don’t think of work when I am there (unless I am there looking at student papers). I don’t think of killing myself when I am at camp.
Occupy has saved my life.
