Where do I begin???
Well, I recently got a twitter account and I love it and so I thought what is next.... UMMM... A BLOG!!!
I am newly hired first year teacher at a Christian School where I will be teaching the 5th grade!! WOW!! I have always worked with younger kids but God has different plans for me this next year. To say I am excited about my new job would be an UNDERSTATEMENT! I am looking so foward to designing my behavior plan, decorating my classroom, and meeting my students.. But all of that "stuff" is not mine it is God's and I cannot wait to see how He is going to choose to use me this next year!
I am beginning the planning phase of getting everything ready for the classroom.. I have labeled ALL 125452198 of my children book collection (really only like 500) and I have searched how to organize my classroom, ways to decorate a classroom, and many other topics. I have found so many amazing things and I cannot wait to implement them in a classroom.
On top of being a newly hired teacher... I have a full-time job at my church right now working with tornado relief volunteers, the youth, and our upcoming mission trip. I am trying to find time to plan a classroom and it can become OVERWHELMING!! During my quiet time this morning, I read about how God wants to be in every decision that I make throughout the day and it is my job to PRAY about all things and He will make my weak attempts to do everything worth it. God is teaching my about having FAITH in Him and that He always knows what is best for me!
Well, I think it is time to go to bed... I am taking the youth to a Braves game and Six Flags this weekend and I have several last minute things to accomplish in the morning... If you read my crazy blog please pray that through all of the craziness of life I take time and PRAY about everything and allow God to be the center of my life and my classroom.
