Since I sadly haven’t posted since October, I need to take a moment to update all of you.
My life feels like it’s been turned upside down since October 7th when I got my call to officially become a LuLaRoe consultant. It’s been exciting and fun meeting new people and helping women find clothes that make them feel confident and comfortable, but it’s also been overwhelming since I also found out that I’m pregnant exactly a week after getting that call! Experiencing 24/7 exhaustion and nausea while taking on a second job, teaching full-time, and being a mom to Jack has been quite the experience to say the least! But I’m beyond thankful for both.
Another exciting update is that I’m going to have my first student teacher when we return from Christmas break! Her name is Mary and I know she’s going to be great. Because of block scheduling and the fact that I have two honors classes, she’ll be splitting her time between my classroom and my best friend, Lindsay’s, classroom. She’s going to take some of my senior classes and some of Lindsay’s freshman classes. She’ll also get to work with my honors freshmen on occasion and Lindsay’s senior IB students. I think it will be a good experience for her. And since she’s double majoring in special education with an endorsement in Autism, she’ll get to work with some of our special ed teachers during planning periods and such. It might sound like a crazy schedule, but Lindsay and I have it all worked out for her so it’s seamless. Regardless, I’m really excited to guide her over the next few months so she can enter the world of YA and see how wonderful being an English teacher can be.
Anyway, even though I haven’t been blogging, I have been reading still. I’m working on a couple posts to update all of you in that department as well.
