I DID IT!!

Today, June 1st, Marks the journey to the rest of my career! I GOT A TEACHING JOB!!! Yes folks, my interviewing skills and dressy suit paid off! I received a first grade position at a school in Riverton. Midas Creek Elementary. The school is great, the faculty is sweet, and I hear the parents are involved and supportive. YES! Every first year teacher's DREAM! I met the other fellow first grade teachers. One was preparing for the last week of school and was tye-dying shirts their "Camping shirts." . She had a tent up in her room. I love the teacher involvement already! I had been praying and hoping for this position at this school. IT ALL WORKED OUT. It's in the Jordan School district. We all know what's going on there....but I.GOT. LUCKY!!
Where I will be "living!"
That's not a very good picture of the school, -
just thought I would clarify, Dont need anyone thinking I live in a facility of some sort!

I am on a year around schedule....that means I go every 9 weeks, then get three off. Think I can handle that! I will be saying goodbye to good ole Ogden. I have been up here for seven years. Wow! Change is good. Its necessary!
AND to top it off, I got a call yesterday at Utah Idaho Supply (I may have purchased a few things already) But I was their MAY winner and won a $25 gift card. Could this day get ANY better? I mean, really!!


that's right. That's my NAME on the door! My friend Merrilee, who happens to work there, took my picture. Don't worry. I didn't ask a stranger to take my picture! And you should all be proud of me... I only spent $17.63!
