Hello friends! I want to give a heartfelt THANK YOU for continuing to visit "Mrs. Gold's Class" over the last few years, especially since I haven't been updating the site. As you all know, I took a two year maternity leave from September 2013 through August 2015. Last year, I had to make a final decision if I wanted to return back to my job, or continue to be a stay-at-home-mom. As MUCH as I loved my job, I had to make the best decision for my family, and I opted to resign. I've had some health issues over the last few years as well, and I realized that life is short and I wanted to spend every second I could with my boys. It definitely took me almost a year to accept the fact that I gave up a job I loved, administration and friends whom I was very close to, teaching in one of the best districts of NJ, a tenured position, and years towards my pension and retirement....BUT I have faith that one day I will look back on my decision and not regret it for a minute. And I do plan to go back one day, and have set up steps to prepare myself and my family to get back into teaching- even though it'll be a few years from now.
Although I'm no longer teaching at the moment and have no plans to update this website, I do plan to keep it running for those teachers who use it as a resource, and for my old students who are stopping by to say hello and relive old memories! Thank you once again for not forgetting about me, and for visiting me!
