Excitement!

Yep...I am just bursting at the seams with EXCITEMENT!! Today, after meeting with our campus director, I verbally (paperwork still has to go through corporate :p) accepted a TEACHING POSITION at Vista Academy of Garland!  I could not be more thrilled to be starting my teaching career at Vista.  I could not ask for a more positive work environment!  I ADORE my co-workers!  Some of the sweetest people I have ever met. Incredibly dedicated and driven to help our students. 

I will be teaching 2nd GRADE!  I am particularly fond of this grade.  I completed all 14 weeks of my student teaching in 2nd grade.  I could not have had a better student teaching experience or mentor in Mindy Dillard.  There is something that feels very comfortable about this age and I chalk it up to the confidence she instilled in me as a student teacher.  I will also have the privilege of co-teaching with my sweet friend, Audrah!  I can't wait to work along side her and learn from her experience.  When her current co-teacher,Kasi, another dear friend, decided to be a stay at home mommy she immediately suggested I take her place!  Audrah and I have already started chatting about next year and what we want to teach.  Audrah is going to take math and science, and I am going to take on ELA and social studies.  Those happen to be my two faves!  Thanks Aud :p!

I feel so incredibly blessed that God has led me here and opened this door.  I pray that He uses me to minister and guide these sweet kiddos.  I may not be able to share the Gospel in the classroom but I can certainly strive to let His love light shine through me.  I pray He gives me the wisdom to teach as He taught.  Christ was the ultimate Teacher.  

Be on the look out for more posts as I start planning for next year and letting my creative juices flow. I have decided on a classroom theme!! 2nd Graders Rock! It may seem a little predictable since I am married to a rockin guitar player, but I don't care!  I can't help but get excited about all the FUN and CREATIVE ways to incorporate this into my classroom!  

***TEACHER FRIENDS:  I WILL BE ACCEPTING ANY LEFTOVERS YOU MAY NOT WANT!  BOOKS, DECOR, EXTRA MATERIALS, STORAGE...I will be humbly grateful for any way you may be able to help me kick off my first year :)  including all prayer :p ***
