Going back to work


After 24 years (I graduated with my BSEd in 1984), getting married, raising three kids, and subbing for what seems like forever, I am finally hired!!!!! New teacher orientation is three days next week; in-service is two days the following week, and school starts on September 2.
I'll be teaching 10th Grade World Cultures. Granted, it has been a while since I touched this subject, but I think it will all fall into place once I get going.
Needless to say, my sewing time is going to be hurtin'....................I guess you really can't have your cake and eat it too.
Keep your fingers crossed!

Nancy ~ CONGRATULATIONS & GOOD LUCK, I am sure you will do a great job ~ 10th Gr.(!!) YOU GO GIRL!! Our school is gearing up, middle school is where I am at, as a Secretary (Adm. Assistant) don't tell my boss about this title my salary DOES NOT reflect the title ;-/! We have one week before ALL MUST BE READY!! Your sewing/quilting will slow down but NOT STOP! Somehow we make time and you do need something to help you relax!

Congrats on the new job! And a big THANK YOU for being a teacher.

I wonder how you could fit quilting into World Cultures . . .

Congratulations! I hope you still have plenty of weekend sewing time. You'll need it to de-stress from teenagers.

Best of luck with your new students and new year. I am a high school teacher too and love/hate this time of year. The excitement of the new classes, but the lack of time to quilt makes it a bummer. Just remember to take some time for YOU each day and you will be a much happier teacher!

Well, congratulations on your new job! I hope the year goes very smoothly for you. We have been in school for 1 week and 2 days now and I am already needing a holiday! LOL - Just kidding.

Amanda said...

Have a great time. I fear that you won't get much sewing done at all for a while - teaching is far too exhausting.

Congratulations for joining the best profession full time! (other than being a MOM)

If you need a contact in SWEDEN for World Cultures you can feel free to contact me! (or your students can, if they have a project or questions)

You can always to some sort of FABRIC in other cultures as a project! weavings, batik, printings, etc!

GRATTIS! Felicidades!
Congratulations!

Wow, what an adventure! When did you retire and start subbing? I'm subbing this year, I was long-term, but that didn't turn out. So I'm back to regular subbing. I'm sure I will love the flexibility with it. I have my BS in Zoology, but have always thought I should go back for my teaching certificate. Hmmm. Good luck!

Best of luck to you. Sounds like you're really looking forward to it!

Congratulations, Nancy! My wife just started a new teaching job after being home with the kids for the past 4 years. The thing is, she didn't teach before ... so she's new to the profession. She's teaching 2 courses at the local community college. Hope everything is going well for you so far!
