Job News

It's been awhile... Life is crazy busy, but I do have some extremely exciting news! I have been applying for teaching jobs in Murfreesboro for 2 years now. This year, Eldon and I decided that I should expand my job search to Knoxville since that is where we want to end up anyways. I was a little hesitant, because he doesn't graduate until December which would mean that there would be a chance of us having to do long distance again. We had a long discussion about it and decided that since we did 3 years of long distance, we could handle a few months if I happened to get a job.

I had a few interviews at a couple of Knox County schools, but there was only one school that I really wanted to get a teaching position at. My sister-in-law works at the school so I had volunteered there and used her class for some of my assignments in college. The school quickly became my dream school because I loved everything about it. I love the student population and the staff. Long story short, I got a job offer at my dream school on Monday! I will be a 4th grade teacher for the 2012-2013 school year, and I could not be more excited!!!

In other news, it's the end of April which means the Great Strides walk is approaching quickly. There is still time to make a donation, and every little bit is appreciated! If you are interested in helping out just click here. It will take you to my personal Great Strides page.

Also, next week in my CF Clinic appointment. I have no idea where my PFT's will be this time. If you recall, my last visit was amazing. My numbers were up, and I was super excited. Since then, life has been crazy, and allergies have been awful. I'm hopeful that they won't go down at all, but I guess we will see.

Happy Friday everyone!
