You see, this is a brief illustration to help you understand the past four years of my life:
A: This is the site of Grace College in Winona Lake, IN. This is where, just over 4 years ago (2007), I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.
B: I decided I wanted an adventure (and I couldn't find a job in Indiana), so I moved to the Washington, D.C. area and taught at a private school for 3 years. I loved 3rd grade!
C: Then my family moved to California. I was the only one on the East Coast! So, summer of 2010 I packed all of my belongings into a truck and high-tailed in to the San Francisco Bay Area.
D: So, here I am... strangely close to where I first began. I'm in Northwest Indiana, hoping to land a permanent teaching job one day. For now, I'll put in my time
Ironically enough, my first sub position is at my previous private school in the DC area. A good friend is having surgery, so off I go! It's at least a 6 week gig, plus I get to be close to my friend during her recovery time. So, you can expect that the first few posts of this blog will encompass the adventures of an educator highly unqualified to teach Spanish and Computer to the little ones. :) Should be entertaining, no?
