Job Update...

I haven't found anything yet. My husband and I have decided to move back to Florida and stay with my mom and dad until we can get established there. I plan to sub and tutor until I can find a permanent teaching job. I made some subtitute business cards on to pass out to teachers.

What do you think?

I've been blog stocking and saving ideas for when I have my own classroom again. : ) I can't wait!!!

School's OUT for SUMMER!!!

This year has been great. I have learned soooo much over the past two years! The school I teach at is closing due to low enrollment. I am job hunting... I know GOD has a plan for me I am living by the scripture Jeremiah 29:11. I just have to trust and pray that everything will be OK and I will find another job.
 I love teaching!!! Please continue to pray for me.

7 1/2 more days!

Yep that's right... Only 7 1/2 days with my sweet little 1st and 2nd graders. I will miss them so much! Our school is closing at the end of this school year due to low enrollment.

I've been with these kids 2 years now and they have grown so much since I first met them. I too have grown as a teacher leaps and bounds. They have taught me A LOT about being a real teacher. I love every minute of it and wouldn't trade this experience for anything!!

Please pray for these kids as they make the transition into different schools. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers also as I search for a new job. I love teaching and couldn't picture myself doing anything else!!!

Please share this with your bloggy friends!! I believe there is power in prayer and we need a lot of it!!! THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!

Have a blessed Tuesday and enjoy the rest of your week!!!
