My dream job

You know. . I never actually thought I’d find myself back in the classroom of a school. . But I honestly didn’t even look for this new job I have now!  God dropped it in my lap. . And I actually found it a little hard to believe it when I got it!  The offer letter was sitting in my email inbox and I just read it and read it again, thinking, “there’s got to be a catch.  This can’t be real.  Things like this don’t just happen.” Especially not to me. But it was real and I’ve been teaching Kindergarten now for almost three weeks!  🙂 my favorite grade. . At a charter school in the downtown area.. which I also love.  🙂 the building is awesome! It’s an old fbi building they renovated and made into the school. . And the people there are amazing!  All of them are so nice and helpful!  🙂 and the kids are pretty great too 🙂 I already have my favorites ..

Sometimes I have to remind myself that I’m not dreaming. .its really real.  The pay and benefits are great!  🙂 and the days off are plentiful! Today is the first already. We have veteran’s day off and so does Emma’s school so. . We are at McDonald’s. . Her favorite place in the whole world (despite it not really being the greatest food. . She is obsessed with hamburgers).. I only take her here rarely. . And we’ve found a new one today so the novelty is helping 🙂 I tried a bacon ranch salad here was pretty good. . For McDonald’s.  Lol gotta love it.  I’m gonna go visit my babies later on today at Kindercare cuz I do miss those little monsters 😦 they were my world for so long.. but things change. That’s the one constant in life you can always depend on: things change. People move. Or move on.  Jobs come and go.  Old people pass on.  New life is born. There’s change all around us. And even with how much I’ve always hated it, I have to admit,  Sometimes change is for the better. And even with the bad there’s always some good to be found.


About Shannon

My life is summed up in two words: Saving Grace. God saw fit to bless me with a little girl who, for all intents and purposes, turned out to be my saving grace. She is the best part of my life, and the best part of me. I am a single working mother (I know, that phrase is redundant :) so I don't have a lot of time for extracurricular activities, but I like to write, and so I thought I'd start another blog (I've had many in the past) so that I could have an outlet for myself, during my down time ...whenever that can be snatched. It's few and far between these days.... but we'll see where this takes me.
