I did resign and I resigned for very personal reasons. I should NOT have elaborated upon them in any way shape or form here on this blog for the 5th graders to interpret. I should NOT have put them (the sweet, sweet students) in the middle of this very adult situation. It was so extremely wrong of me and I will forever be regretful of my choice in those actions. I was not thinking it through and the full consequences of these actions. I must reiterate that am sorry and will be forever sorry for doing that.
I am an honest person and writing has always been my outlet. It is how I express my emotions. Did I take my writing too far The past couple of days? Absolutely. Did I forget my audience? UNDOUBTEDLY!!! I was angry and I was emotional. However, Am I unstable as I was called? ABSOLUTELY NOT. Just extremely emotional over a raw situation. I am so sorry for dragging the 5th graders though things that may be over their heads. I also want you to know that I NEVER gave them my phone number. I have however, shared my personal email.
Anyway, the point of this is to offer my sincerest apologies for my blog posts that have offended you. It was not m intention to offend you, but clearly I have and that truly, truly upsets me in knowing this. I still cannot rest easy having now apologized, but I can at least know that you've heard my sincerest, most heartfelt apologies. I only want the best for your children. I truly love them endlessly and not seeing their faces daily is the hardest thing I have ever done. Thank you for your understanding and I hope to have your forgiveness. I truly love your students more than words.
