After 5 years of trying,applying,hoping,praying,trying,applying,hoping,wishing,praying,and trying I am finally back in a true school setting!!! Last Sunday I officially accepted a TA (teacher's assistant) position in a special ed kindergarten room at an elementary school;it is my foot in the door! I love the kindergarten teachers I work with and the other TAs are great. The six students in our room are sweet and smart and our first week is already done!
Friday: Had the interview early in the morning before I went to my "old" job.
Saturday/Sunday: I received the phone calls from the school principal and assistant superintendent offering me the job, I called my old job and left them a message saying I took the TA position and that Monday would be my last day there.
Monday: Had my last day as a PreK teacher in the corporate daycare;said good bye to my coworkers,bosses and kiddos.
Tuesday: Went to the district office to fill out the paper work before the Institute Day! Went to Institute day.
Wednesday-Friday: Full days in the classroom with the students!!
What a crazy,enjoyable,whirlwind of a week! It all still hasn't sunk in yet and I can't stop being happy,grateful,blessed and excited for this new chapter in my life.
This is just another part of His plan and I am very excited about this leg of the journey.
God is good,all the time.
