New Job

Believe it or not, I am still in Provo. It is still so surprising that after physically moving my stuff to two different states over the summer I find myself right where I started. Life is funny like that.

I decided to apply to two different positions in Utah once it became apparent that Texas and California were not going to happen. I applied to a school in SLC and one in Provo. The following week I had interviews for both, both which seemed to go well. Shortly thereafter I found out that I wasn't chosen for either position, but I was informed about a unique situation with a second grade position here in Provo at Rock Canyon Elementary.

Shortly before the start of the new school year a teacher at Rock Canyon became quite ill and she wasn't sure if she'd be able to get her room ready in time for school. The principal not sure what to do, decided to hire someone as a sub in the event that her health didn't recover.

Well, to make a long story short, I was that sub who was hired but the story has a happy ending! The teacher decided that it was in her best interest to take a year leave of absence, and I was contracted for this school year! I am a teacher!!!

We are now on our second week and things have been wonderful. I love my students, I love that I teach second grade again, I love the people I work with, and I love being in the Provo district. This job has been a great blessing to me and I'm so grateful to be teaching this year!
