I'm Employed... Whoot Whoot!

Ha!
Today I accepted a job that I am thrilled about! I will be working as a kindergarten aide at a local Christian school. The head of school described this position as way more than an aide position though, which excites me. I will be the aide for both kindergarten classes in the school, and I will focus primarily on working with small groups of students on reading and writing skills. This school offers a 1/2 day and full day kindergarten program, so in the afternoon when "1/2 dayer's" go home, the other students will go to specials such as PE, art, music, spanish, etc. During this time I will plan with the kindergarten teachers, and I will also work with small reading groups in first grade. It sounds like a great mix of the challenges of teaching, yet will still provide me with the time in the evenings to audit classes at Covenant and take care of our apartment and such. It offers me a fair salary and good benefits for me and Marty. I am excited to be a part of such a positive school environment and I can't wait to meet the teachers I will be working closely with. This position is such a blessing from the Lord. It will meet our needs financially and will give me the freedom to support Marty as he is in school and I will be able to audit classes too. I could not have imagined a position like this, and I am thrilled to yet again watch the Lord provide for us!
