So continuing where I left off yesterday, it's been a rough year and not just financially. BUT things are starting to look up. On June 15, I accepted a teaching position for a third grade class at the school I already work at. I start on July 25 for pre-planning and the first day of school is August 8. This is a HUGE financial blessing which may seem crazy given the bad rap teaching salaries get, but it'll be more than double what I currently make. Isn't that awful? Teaching assistants make less than half of what teachers make in my county. :(
Anyway, I am beyond thrilled to have a class of my own and have been going Pinterest crazy with planning. Now that there is only a week and a half until I start, I need to get into real planning mode. I am hoping I can get into my classroom this week or at least pop into school to laminate some things. I have a ton of lamination to do and then it all needs to be cut out.
I think right now I am equally excited and scared out of my mind. I'm trying not to stress out, but I'm sure it'll get worse before it gets better. ;)
