new news

Well, school is going well. I am very surprised at how busy I can be. The high school keeps me busy keeping up with grades and helping teachers make accommodations. The elementary keeps me busy from classroom to classroom. It has been very nice to have a major distraction from being sick constantly though! :) We found out that we are expecting back the first week of school and with anxiety from the new job and planning a new baby just started to overwhelm me. But school is now a welcome distraction from being nauseous.

high school revisited...

Today was my first day with the students at my old high school. I am going to be setting up a program for those students who have special needs, whether the student already has an IEP or 504, or just needs help. Today I was walking through the halls and as classes were changing and felt just like back in the day. Being short and more than 3/4th of the students towering over me reminds me of why I went into elementary ed. :)
Taking this job has really deepened my dependance on God and I have taken Phil. 4:13 as a theme verse for this experience. When I say it though, it seems fitting to think it out as "God can do all things through me because He gives me strength."
