New Job

I recently have been offered and accepted a position teaching 6th grade! I'm totally pumped and excited about this opportunity and am looking forward to working with some great teachers and individuals. I feel blessed beyond measure for the work that God is doing in my wife and I's lives right now. During the time between finishing up my maternity leave and accepting this new offer I was blessed with a job that could pay our bills. I worked as a screen print production artist at a large contract printer. I have background in design and screen printing that I gained from working at a screen print and awards business while I was going to school to become a teacher.  I need to start planning for the upcoming year. I need to see my room and start getting some stuff for it. I need to start thinking about materials I will need. Some of these questions will be answered in the coming week because we are getting together as a team with the principal and going over teaching responsibilities for the upcoming year. I'm intrigued about my teaching partner and getting to meet him.  I'm looking forward to this year and finally settling down into my own classroom.

Among other news. My wife and I are also photographers who focus mostly on weddings and senior portraits and last night we had the opportunity to shoot one of my college classmate's wedding and got to see a lot of my old classmates and friends. I can't believe it has been 4 years since we all met and 2 years since we graduated together. Some of us have not went into education full-time and some of us have not, blazing their own trails. The job market for teachers in Indiana is not too hot currently and I feel incredibly lucky to have received an offer.

I'm looking forward to this year.
