One of these friends was offered a job as a principal at one the elementary schools in our district which left her position vacant. I am happy to say that I am now Dyer County's Special Education Consulting Teacher for the middle schools and high school.
Basically my job takes me out of my classroom and puts me in a position that allows me to focus on making sure that our students are getting the services they need and that all of the paperwork is getting done. It is a very big job with very big responsibilities and I am sooooo nervous because I know that I will be forced into situations that are definitely out of my comfort zone as I mediate between the schools, students, and parents. But I am looking forward to the challenges of this new job and helping my students in a new way.
To celebrate, we all went out for Mexican (of course!) and had a fun time. It was the first time we had been out as a family in forever and it felt relaxing and good!
Thanks to all who have congratulated me on this new opportunity. Keep me in your prayers over the next few months as I get settled into my job and learn the ropes! :)
