I want to write here more often! I originally titled this blog "Teaching My Blessings" because at the time I was teaching my three sons preschool at home. I loved my time at home with them for seven years full time. I then taught preschool part time for two years. Then after much prayer and consideration, it was time for me to return to work full time. Teaching has always been my passion and heart cry. So I happily returned to the classroom. I was very blessed to be able to get a teaching position at the same school my boys attended. I will not lie it was one of the hardest things I've done in adult life thus far. The transition was challenging on our family, but we survived and adjusted well. My words for that school year (and every school year since) were BALANCE and GRACE. Balance in this thing called life and Grace for myself and everyone around me. I am still fleshing that out 3 years later. I love the Lord, my family, and my students. I desire to be the best God has created me to be. I want to be a great mom, wife, and teacher and to do all of that it requires grace! I'm still learning so much about God's amazing grace.
I feel the name of this blog still fits my life as God has just expanded my territory with the blessings I now teach. My first priority will always be my own family, but I now get to teach 55 third graders this year! Those babies are my blessings too! I teach departmentalized writing and science. I love teaching my precious students!
I hope you will join me as I begin to write more about whatever God lays on my heart. It may not look the same when I began writing here in 2011. I may write about what God is teaching me, what I'm teaching my boys, what I'm teaching in my class or whatever comes my way. Thank you for joining me on the journey!
