Hey everyone,

If you follow me on FB, you saw a post last week that was cryptic, saying that big things were happening on my end.

As you know, I accepted a long term doing ESOL and math interventions. I was just getting settled in my routine when I was thrown for a loop. A huge loop. #lifechanging

I was pulled into the principal's office and the door was shut behind me. Thoughts went through my head and I was thinking, " I know I've been doing a pretty good job this first week!" He asked a few questions and about 10 minutes later, I walked out of the office in a confused state. I may have been grinning like a loon or just in a dazed state (it's all a blur), because I got a few crazy looks and a few, "Are you alright?" and a "What's wrong with you?"

Some crazy stuff happened and I won't go into the details as to why/how and what for respect.... but I think my blog name should now be "Journey of an {Ex} Substitute Teacher".

You are reading the blog of a third grade teacher!

  2. Congratulations to you, Ms. T.! I know (too well) that feeling of being called into the principal's office and it isn't always good! I'm so happy it turned out well for you. I started teaching 3rd grade and should've stayed there. I moved onto 4th, then 6th and finally middle school, where I got so burnt out that I just quit. Now I'm back to subbing and doing it happily. So, what does this new position mean to your blog readers? A new blog?

    1. No new blog! I'm still on a journey lol. I just may put an "Ex" in front of substitute teacher. Nothing on my blog will change except there will more of my classroom stuff!

  3. Yahoo!!! I am jumping for joy & excited to follow you on your new journey.

  4. I've followed your blog for a while. I subbed for 5 months after college (Dec. grad) and I now teach Kindergarten. The feeling of finally landing a job is amazing. CONGRATULATIONS! What a strange way for it all to happen! YAY

  5. Congratulations! I am thrilled for you!

  6. I just started subbing after a 15 year hiatus and look forward to digging into your archives but I must say...................WHOOOOO HOOOOOOO!!!!!! Great job and congratulations!!! You'll be great! I LOVE 3rd graders!

  7. I've followed your blog for such a long time. Congratulations on your new job- you're going to rock it!!

  8. Sooooo incredibly happy for you! Woo hoo!


Thanks for leaving me happy notes!
