A New Beginning

Well, all my worries this summer over what to do this fall seem to have resolved themselves nicely. I haven't even had a chance to tell anyone yet, but I did get a job as a teacher's aide at the Primary school. It was a whirlwind experience, as in driving home from a family reunion in Tennessee, going to a quick interview, accepting the job on the spot, and then heading back out for family vacation two hours later. We got home after midnight last night, and I started work this morning!

I'll be working with one individual student, helping to adjust assignments for his level, working one-on-one with core subjects, escorting to speech, OT, PT, etc. I am also going early two mornings a week to provide before-school care for the children of school employees, as their work day starts earlier than they are supposed to drop off their kids. I think it is wonderful that the district is offering this to their employees free of charge! I also have lunchroom and recess duty for the second & third graders. Sigh. Better pack my ear plugs! Not so bad this time of year, but around January/February I'll be miserable.

Anyway, just wanted to explain about the new adventure I'm embarking upon. Wish me luck!
