My Dream Job!

I am thrilled to say that I am the new 2nd grade teacher at Westwood Primary School! I just received the phone call this morning and I am going in tomorrow to get all of my paperwork signed and figured out.
I cannot believe that I can actually call myself a TEACHER now! Man, have I waited a long time to be able to say that.

Once I get things squared away with the job I will be posting pictures of my room before and after, and getting it all ready for the kiddos in August! I am so excited I could just scream it from the rooftops, and I can't wait to start really teacher blogging with the rest of those amazing teachers out there :)

Blog world here I come!

I've been looking through hundreds of teacher blogs since I graduated from college 3 weeks ago, and I have been so inspired to start my own! This is my first blog of many more to come...I hope to be as inspiring as so many other teachers out there have been to me!
I am waiting (on pins and needles) to hear back from 5 job interviews so far. In my perfect world, I would love to end up teaching 2nd grade at the school I student taught at. Hopefully I will hear the good news in the next couple of weeks, I will be sure to keep you updated!

I of course have already purchased and made so many things for my new classroom, it has almost become an addiction and I don't even have a classroom or official teaching position yet, was anyone else like that before their first year of teaching?

Here's to the wonderful world of teacher blogging! :)
