I Got It

Thanks for all of the good wishes; I got the job! I'll be teaching eighth grade Career and Investigation (don't ask me what that means quite yet - I have training in a couple of weeks). All I know is that it is computer based and that every student in the school will be in my class at some point.

The interview wasn't what I would have called incredibly successful. At one point, I started rambling and repeating myself, and then said, "Now that was eloquent, wasn't it?" Luckily, the principal found me charming and a "perfect fit". He called me on the phone today to welcome me aboard. It's comforting to have someone that seems so genuinely kind.

Argh. I guess that means I have to get some new clothes. :)

That's my girl!!!! I'm so proud of you. You always loved the middle school age group. Better you than me! I would like to be a fly on the wall in your classroom though.

Ron Salazar called me the other night and he saw your name on military.com. I gave him your site to read. Can't wait to see you and Tucker. Hurry up!

Love, Mom
