Today, I talked.
Today, I listened.
Today, I let more than a hundred students into my life and classroom.
Today, I taught.
Today I got to be a teacher!
I'm so in love with my job!

Mommy's Got a Brand New Game
Today I got my kids to offer to wash floors and clean windows. We also dusted and cleaned walls and sinks. Aidan is currently washing the walls and doors in the hallway. They are pretending to be like Cinderella. I love it! I have no idea how to convince other children of this game but it's awesome! I think I am going to have to pay them something. I offered a dollar and they got very excited. I love cheap labor!

After many silly schools dismissing my amazing-ness, one has finally seen the light! I am now gainfully employed at Elkhart Central High School!!!!! I could not be more excited!!! I get my own classroom and smart boards have been ordered! I haven't stopped smiling yet! I don't have all the details yet. I haven't seen my classroom and I have a ton of meetings to go to this next week but there it is... I have a job. (I'm going to try not to cry now:)

My license showed up in the mail the other day and I'll admit to getting a little weepy about finally holding it in my hands after working for it for four years.
