As we were hiking yesterday, a good friend of mine asked me about the pros and cons of this past year. “Overall, was it worth it?”
My answer: “I’m not sure.”
It has been a year of ups and downs, of incredible opportunities and tremendous pain. It has led to personal growth, and hopefully some good in the world of education. But it has taken it’s toll on me, and especially my family.
Has it been worth it? I’m not sure yet. Perhaps time will tell. Or perhaps that’s not a question that can adequately be answered.
