Sorry...

I've been remiss. My life is always so much more hectic here. I haven't felt much like blogging for a number of reasons-- I hate dial-up, for one. And a chapter of my life that I don't much want to discuss right now has finally ended in a very hurtful way.

But there is one good reason for my silence. I have a job--of course, my advisor doesn't know. I actually had two offers a day apart. One at my alma mater to teach a world history since 1500 (my minor but not exactly a comfort zone) and one based at my home church--a tutorial program funded by the Louisiana DoE. I took the paycut and the easier job with third and fourth graders. So my kid is in my class--that's an experience.

But the best thing is that best friend Louisiana has the 1st and 2nd graders in the classroom next to mine. We've never taught together--she started teaching high school the year after I left teaching elementary. I'm really enjoying that.

What I'm not enjoying is writing lesson plans again.

Congrats on the job! Although your advisor may not like it, you have to do what you need to do for your pocketbook.

Good to see you around these parts.

Yay! Go on, employed one. What Advisor doesn't know won't hurt her (can you tell I've said that before?)
