Because...drumroll please...I am now...keep the drumroll coming...a kindergarten teacher!
<Insert lots of screaming and jumping up and down and carrying on here. For those of you who know me this should be easy.> Woooooo hooooo!
I knew that the likelihood that I would be hired right before school started was pretty high if I was going to be hired at all. And I was being pretty choosy too - I only had my heart set on one position - part-time kindergarten at the school I taught at last year. Well, the enrollment finally made it to what it needed to be to hire a part-time position and I received the phone call yesterday morning during Ellen. Love Ellen, by the way, how funny is she?!
Anyway, I spent much of yesterday on Cloud 9, possibly Cloud 11, I was in such a good mood. And what time I didn't spend there, I spent running around like a chicken with it's head cut off trying to figure out how on earth I was going to piece together a classroom by THURSDAY. Yes, Open House is on THURSDAY night. Did I mention Open House is on THURSDAY?!
So, in addition to being superexcited (I mean, I got my own set of keys to the school for goodness sake!), I also have 4097 things to do before Thursday (which is now 72 hours away - eeek!).
Oh, and did I mention I am a new mom to a five-week-old, too?????
Life's getting ready to get a wee bit crazy for the next week. So, posts may be few and far between for the next couple of days. Hopefully I can post a pic of my classroom once it looks bee-yoo-tiful.
The pic above is of me teaching fifth grade in the spring of 2007. Talk about a thinspiration picture. Sheesh, why did I ever think I had fat days back then? As my momma always says, "Yesterday's fat picture is tomorrow's skinny picture." So true, so true.
