School starts again!!

Today was my first day back at work. Being a teacher is definitely an interesting job. It almost feels like you quit on the last day of school and then start a totally new job again 10 weeks later. New students....and after 5 years I'm still not teaching the same subjects!! I'm making lesson plans and creating assignments for 2 new classes this year! Sometimes I wonder why I was crazy enough to take on Advanced English for 8th grade and digital photography...PLUS helping out with Student Council. I need to be challenged though!!

I got up at 6AM and read my Bible as I ate my breakfast. I'm hoping to do this all school year! I sat through some meetings today and worked in my classroom a little bit. I got some interesting news from my boss, and I participated in a 3 hour student council meeting. By the time I got home I had been gone for more than 13 hours. I still had laundry to fold and my blog to write. All of that is definitely an adjustment after doing hardly anything for the last 10 weeks besides hanging out with my dogs and talking with Layton; however, my WONDERFULLY AMAZING husband surprised me with a Hoops and YoYo FAV...and a nice bottle of bubble on the counter when I got home. We sat for about and hour and discussed our day and played with the puppy. He sure knows how to take care of me :)

I have vowed to myself this school year to NOT complain and to take on the challenges that God has placed in my life. I DO NOT want to become a complacent Christian, friend, or person. I want to grow in my spiritual walk, in my career, and in the relationships that God has placed in my life. I want to make a difference in the people around me and in my student's lives. I want to MATTER!!

Today's blessing: Having an amazing job and working with amazing Christian people. Being blessed with people in my life that challenge me to grow and make me want to be more like Christ!


  1. Yay for school and teachers like you!!!

  2. You have a great husband :) Glad you had a good first day!

  3. I couldn't agree more Hannah! This week is already proving to be tiring and it's only Tuesday!

  4. Layton is the man! That's all I have to say! Well not really...I pray this next year is a blessed one! God will give you the strength you need to do what you need to do! Love ya!
