Welp, friends! I am jumping on to my little corner of cyber world to explain some life changing, earth moving news for my family. Let me just share with you my past week in a nutshell!
Tuesday evening, my hubby and I were driving around my his jeep on a few dirt roads while discussing our goals for the next few years.We both came to the conclusion that maybe I should send an email and "just see" about a teaching position. This would help us meet the goals that we have for our family. I already knew the principal and just shot her an email at around 8:00 Tuesday night. She responded to my email within 30 minutes to let me know there were positions open and to pass along the contact information in order to proceed.
The next morning, I called the personnel director's secretary who immediately sent me to the director himself. I chatted with him for a bit and he encourage me to come on down to the office to fill out some paperwork. Within the hour I had my paperwork filled out and I was on the roster for an 8:00 interview the next morning!
I went home with a few things to do to prepare for the interview and in the mean time, began to contact private schools in the area for the girls "just in case." The one I wanted had "just enough room." Coincidence? I think not! The next morning, I had a terrific interview and found out that afternoon that I would be teaching third grade at the school I was hoping for as it has an awesome Pre-K program for my youngest. I next called the private school and got that finalized! Of course, this summary leaves out the thought processes that I endured through that 48 hours but you can see how the pieces fell together so quickly that I am now doing the mamba trying to get everything ready to go!
My family will definitely be blessed by this turn of events that I can only describe as God's wonderful handiwork. Now, to say that my Pinterest has been blown away with third grade pins and my wish list on TPT has grown would be an understatement!

Now, to say that my TPT cart has EXPLODED getting ready for back to school would be an understatement!! lol I am now a third grade teacher! Wowzers! I went from a homeschooling Mom on Tuesday with no thoughts of getting back in the public classroom, to a third grade teacher on Thursday with Meet the Teacher in a week!
