Hi Everyone! It has definitely been one of those years.
As I stated before and never came back.
I have been doing some soul searching; determining if "teaching" is where I should be.
Or better yet, finding my teacher-niche' ....and wondering if Special Education is it.
More on that later.
Its been six months since I "Currently-ed" so go easy on me....
A lot of what I wrote is self-explanatory, but a few things. (THINKING) I recently joined a nonprofit that mentors fostered youth. I am so excited because I was matched up and I get to meet my mentee tomorrow! (NEEDING) In order to get my finances in order, I have made a few changes. One includes Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University, which I graduated from this past Saturday-yay! In it you make an Emergency Fund of $1000 for instances when Murphy pops up....and he does pop up! (SUMMER LOVIN) I plan to be touristy! I am coming on my third summer in this area and I never really explore...I made it my goal to do so! Also, I want to get back into art- my first love. Art can be very therapeutic and I need it after this school year is over....on the 24th-AHHH! Lastly, Ramsey taught me to go after the things I want to change or improve with "gazelle-like" intensity, so I plan to spend the summer doing just that.
Thank you guys so much for stopping by. Stay tuned for a follow-up post about Highlights and Lowlights (?) from this year and where I have been.
