I created this blog with the intention of blogging weekly. Now I look back at that idea and just laugh. I have barely had time to do laundry and cook, let alone blog about my experiences.
We recently celebrated 100 days of school. I am over 1/2 way finished with my first year as a teacher. I have been exhausted, emotional, excited, stressed, overwhelmed. You name the emotion, I’ve probably experienced it at some point this year. It has been a roller coaster ride of emotions.
I am excited for my future as a teacher. I am already looking forward to next year when I can slowly make my way out of “survival mode”. I am confident that each year will get easier and I will be more knowledgeable about what I am teaching and how to teach it.
I have to say, God had a plan when he placed me at Glenwood in 1st grade. I have a team of teachers that are uplifting, supportive, and encouraging. It’s rare to find a job where you love the people you work with and love what you do. I can honestly say that both of those statements are true for me.
I am blessed. I am thankful for all the life experiences and journeys that have brought me to this point in my life. I can’t wait to see where God takes me next.
