Monday, I will start a workshop that will help me learn all there is to know about my school district, and I will try and complete my classroom as well as decorate my house; so its a busy week ahead. The next week brings first grade screening as well as my first official day of work at Ogletree!
I am full of emotions about this next chapter: I'm joyful, full of excitement, and also a little bit nervous. I believe that I have a passion for teaching and that this is the right path for me. I find joy in all of the children's faces, reward from knowing and hoping I have made a difference, and encouragement when I help a child know they are special; however, having full responsibility for a classroom makes me a little weak at the knees. I am praying for this next stage in my life and I know God will give me the ability to do His work in the classroom. This assurance has helped me wane the nerves I have and turn them into praise, because God has been so good to me! I am so blessed to have a job in this economy and to have this job in a town that I love. So I hope you keep up with this next journey in my life, as I walk with the Lord and see where He leads me!
