I told God I wasn't applying to any 5th grade positions. No way. You have obviously made me for little kids, Lord. I LOVE K and 1st, and I'll definitely go up to 3rd, and just for pushing it, I'll apply to 4th. But no 5th.
A couple of weeks and no calls later I decided to apply to the 5th grade jobs, BUT there was no way I was mailing them my info or faxing them my resume. No way.
Imagine my surprise after months of waiting, I get a call from an inner-city 5th grade school. inner-city. 5th. grade. James was excited. I was trying to be.
A couple hours later, I got another call from a magnet school for a 2nd grade position.
Nothing for 3 months and then 2 calls in one day. The Lord has great timing, doesn't He? I'll never understand, but I love it.
So we headed up to Chattanooga and 2 interviews, a follow-up interview, and 2 trips later, I found out I got the 2nd grade job! The school is about 3 miles from our apartment and right across the river. They have a partnership with 7 different museums in Chattanooga and go about every other week! And one of the teachers already e-mailed me to say welcome!
hey ya'll! so glad you stopped by! james and i live in chicagoland while james is getting his psyd at wheaton college. our first little boy, covington, was born at the end of february and we're having a blast trying to figure this whole thing out. we're so thankful for all the Lord has blessed us with. thanks for following us in this crazy little adventure of ours!
