Change

Change is hard. So hard. But exciting! I've been working for the same advertising/technology company for four years. And, I've been working from home for that company for the past two and a half years. It was the first job I landed after I graduated from college --- my first "real world" experience, my first clients, my first team. I was just beginning to feel successful in that position when I decided ... why not try a career change?! Last summer, I began the process of taking tests and filling out applications to become a teacher. Most people are very excited to hear that I'm going to be a teacher - normally, their first comment is: "Oh, that's wonderful! What will you be teaching?" I go on to say, "7th grade math," which, in turn, is answered with an, "Ohhhhhhh. Wellllll, uhhhh, good luck with that."

I've been up at the school this week for a few trainings, and I've started putting together my classroom. Needless to say, my yoga-pants-wearing, work-from-the-comfort-of-my-home world is being turned upside down!! I'm excited ... and scared ... and nervous ... but, here I go!

Very excited for you! I know you've been anxiously awaiting for this opportunity-- you will be great, i know! I miss running! I think maybe in the next week or two I might be healed! I know we will have to go very early, though!

Best of luck Codie. I know you are going to do an amazing job and I think you will be a wonderful teacher. Just be confident. Enjoy and learn with the students this first year. Thinking of you :)

I'd love to see you in the teacher role! You'll be great! I have no doubts. I remember my first day and the first time standing in front of my class thinking to myself..."what in the world am I doing?!". How exciting to be starting your new career!

I saw a lot of website but I think this one contains something extra in it. “I am the Roman Emperor, and am above grammar.” by Emperor Sigismund.
