Starting Over...

Happy New School Year!!!

I just started my meetings this morning for my first year teaching requirements. I'm so excited to have a fresh start at a new school, with a new job, and an entirely different outlook on life. Well, an entirely different life, really.

Those of you close to me know the last six months have been trying at best, but I've learned A LOT, and am thankful for the chance to start over. Not very many people get a second chance, especially one this big and wonderful, so I'm going to take full advantage of the opportunity God has given me and do everything I can with it.

I've moved from one middle school to another in the Liberty school district this year. I'll be teaching 7th grade science at Liberty Middle School and couldn't be more excited! I'm sitting in my classroom as I type! My room is just about ready (I'll upload some pictures when I'm done here) and I'm really ready to start the planning for the first few weeks of school as the other teachers start to arrive. The first year teaching thing is a little daunting, but I'm more excited than scared so it should all work out in the wash, right?!

I'm getting ready to move myself to Liberty, too...It's been a great six months with Mom and Dad but I'm looking forward to the five minute commute instead of the 45 minute commute...sounds a whole lot easier to me. I've never had a commute less than 30 minutes, so that will be super nice for me! I've told myself it will give me time to get up and workout in the mornings before I go to school...and on top of that the Liberty Community Center is attached to our school building...motivation?

Other than that, things are great! Just keeping busy and gearing up for the school year! I have lots to learn but I'm really looking forward to all of it!

Love you and Miss you all!
