Prayers Answered!

So just a little recap on where my life has been since January! Well I am in the senior year and I am doing my student teaching. In this state there has been severe budget issues in the public school system and many districts that do not plan on hiring new teachers next year. I have always imagined myself graduating and moving home and starting teaching but God has a different plan for me and I am jumping for joy!

In February I attended the Education Career Fair at my university. I honestly went in thinking that I would use these interviews as practice for my home district's job fair the following weekend. I walked in was overwhelmed how many of the school districts knew who I was. I am one of two students graduating in May with a Bachelor's in Special Education-Learning Disabilities and Emotional Behavior Disabilities and Elementary Education. That day I interviewed with 9 different school districts!

During my interview with Richland One I really felt that this was a potential spot for me. Chris and I talked it over and we debated and we decided to wait to hear back. That following week I got emails from two different individuals from the district about potential job offers. I continued to wait... Yesterday I received a teaching contract! The district also will pay for my Master's after my first year teaching! What a blessing!

I can't wait to see what is in store for Chris and I and God's plans! We are moving to Columbia this summer and couldn't be happier with the way things have turned out!

Snow...snow...and still snowing....

Well today was an interesting day with my students with the threat of snow...indoor recess...and then a lot of snow. It has been snowing since 11am and it starting to stick! As much as I hate to say it I hope and pray we at least have a delay so I can play catch up with sleep. This sinus cold is killing me but I am determined to kick its butt :)
Today's lesson: Shut the classroom blinds if there is a threat of snow :)
