New job!!

Hi Everyone,

I know it has been SO LONG since I last posted, but you know... school always takes priority over all of my other hobbies, including this one.

So, I graduate this semester! My student teaching was complete on Dec. 7th, and I am now a certified teacher.

Other major announcement - I GOT A JOB!! I will be working here.

It is a privately owned in-patient treatment facility for at-risk teenage boys. I will be teaching Biology, Integrated Science, Chemistry, and Physics. Talk about INSANITY! I hope I can live up to their standards and what they are asking of me! I have to pursue my chemistry endorsement now... (SHOOT ME), but I will do it. Having a math science endorsement will pretty much guarantee me a job for the rest of my life. It will be hard though.

We are talking about the girl who baked herself a cake when she finished math forever (ha.. if she could see me now...), and had to spend almost every waking moment with a tutor to get a good grade in her college chemistry class. Thankfully instead of going to the tutoring lab, I have a brilliant husband who can help me this time.

The best part of all of this - I will only have a maximum of 6 kids per class, and I only teach 4 days per week! I have Fridays off! AWESOME! Also, they are offering me several thousand more per year than I would make in the public sector, with both health and dental benefits. How could I say no?!

I start January 3rd. Stay tuned for more excitement and adventure!
