Exciting News!

 I have really struggled with what to do as far as being a stay-at-home mom or continue working since I have had Lucy Jane.  I know that God has called me to be a teacher and I also know that God chose me to be the best mommy to my little monkey!  There is no doubt in my mind that my little girl will always know she is loved, be hugged and kissed every day, and have complete confidence that her family loves her and will provide for her......HOWEVER....there are many children that do not have that luxury.  That is where I come in!  I am so thankful that God has told me to love on those children, hug and kiss on them, and give them complete confidence that they have someone rooting them on throughout their journey. 

This is my 4th year to teach the fifth grade!  I have LOVED teaching this age group! I have known for a little bit that it is time for a change though!  I am drawn to the little ones lately, and was so excited when I found out there were a couple of openings in our school!

It is finally official that I will be teaching 1st grade starting next year! The group of ladies that I will be working with are amazing.  They work so well as a team, and they seem to have so much fun at work.  I need to have fun at work!  I have already started planning with them and dreaming up how I will decorate my classroom!  This will definetely be a TOTAL change from anything that is familiar to me, but I know that it is without a doubt the right decision for me! 

I have a new fire and excitement for the upcoming year!  :)  So thankful for a great opportunity!  (I am a little scared of wetting the pants and eating boogers)  :) 


  1. Congrats! I'm excited for you - although I have to say, with a title like "exciting news" I fully expected to read a blog saying you were pregnant again! :) HAHA!

  2. Haha! I didn't even think about that! :)
