I neglected my online diary aka this blog for a year almost because I started teaching Prek in two different locations. Getting back into the swing of things after being a stay-at-home mom for four years was tough! I had sold/donated some of my teaching stuff--never really sure if I would return. Then I did and I had to collect/make new stuff! So it was like having my first year all over again!!
And I got re-exposed to cooties so I was sick A LOT. :)
But I realized that A)I was born to teach. This is what God instilled in me. and B)I am flexible and strong for being able to manage two different locations (inside daycares--my public school does PreK now inside daycares) plus two different elementary schools (where I filled out paperwork, copied, laminated,etc).
I really think every teacher has a grade or two that is close to their heart ♥. For me it has always been Kindergarten. Always. And for some reason it seems to always be the most competitive grade to get hired in--I guess Kindergarten is in the hearts of many. :) Plus, here in Oklahoma there are so many budget cuts and so many teachers without jobs.
I am blessed to have been hired so very early in a different school, different district and having my sweet, sweet Kindergarten again. I am excited!!!!
I kept hearing, "When God closes one door he opens another." And honestly, I kind of was not sure if the door was locked or going to open lol. I am so blessed and I want to give readers/friends hugs. ~***~
So I am in the process of organizing my home office...going through my teaching stuff and also sorting scrapbook stuff. Honestly, scrapbooking and art have not been a huge priority in my life. But I have that yearning inside to still create! I am sure once I settle into this school year I will start again.
Speaking of creativity!! My online friend Debbie Chavers is having an art challenge!!! Woohoo!!!!
