Been thinking a lot about my life (or lack of) over the past year and realized there was need to make serious adjustments to it. Why? Because for at least the past 4 years I’ve been working full time, flat out, while juggling two kids, a husband and coordinating household /baby sitting rosters.
So I’ve now made adjustments to my work life which are important to share with my readers. James Farmer invited me to work for Edublogs, from home, approximately 6 months ago. At the time I declined because I needed to complete some important work commitments for my TAFE organisation.
My situation has now changed. I’ve explained to my managers at TAFE that I’m tired and in need of a break. While they’ve always been extremely accommodating with my work hours; the travel of 2 hours per day is draining. They have agreed to allow me to:
- Decrease my work hours to 1 day per week
- Undertake outside employment as a elearning consultant
What does this all mean? I will be working 3 days per week for Edublogs (and other elearning work if I desire). It means I can continue to support and help other educators learn how to use these technologies plus provide better support to Edublogs and Edublogs Campus users. But still continue working as an aquaculture lecturer by supporting all our off-campus elearning students and facilitating our on-campus fish genetics course.
I hoping you will be supportive of my decision as it has been extremely hard to make especially considering how accommodating my TAFE has always been.
