New School Year

Tomorrow I start my ninth year as a high school English teacher. The major change is that I am now working for a new district for the first time since I started my teaching career. I am excited and nervous all at the same time. I have my classroom ready and I know I have all my copies done for the next few days but it will be so weird to be at a new school with new kids. This new job happen in such a way that I feel like this is where God wants me to be. One of my friends from church that I used to work with  told me that when he left our old district he made the mistake of trying to hold on to the old district. I have really tried to focus on my new home.  It would be so easy to let myself miss my old colleagues and my former students but that will only make it harder to embrace my new job.  I plan to focus on the new district and my new colleagues and students. My kids and I are even going to a football game at my new school this Friday night. Change is always hard but I know that if I remain faithful to God that he will provide for my children and me. I feel confident about the choices that I have made and I can’t wait to see what the rest of this year has in store for me. I think this will be a great year.
